Types of Fire Suppression

Types of Fire Suppression include the various clean agents, dry chemical and water-based systems that are intended to extinguish combustion. Systems can be manual or automatic, hand-held, fixed, and portable. Agents used in fire suppression are selected for a specific hazard and the agent’s characteristics that enable them to extinguish a fire. Technicians who install, inspect and service systems that monitor or perform releasing applications should be knowledgeable in fire suppression systems. This overview will cite associated course offerings by Elite CEU in the topics discussed.
