There are different types of extinguishers; each designed to extinguish a specific class of fire. They are selected according to the potential fire hazard, the construction and occupancy of the building, and the asset to be protected. It is important to have the right type of extinguisher to fight the fire risk. Many premises have been installed with Water or Class A extinguishers. As the use of electronics has dramatically increased the risk of electrocution has also increased.
