Fire blankets are made of fire resistant materials. They are particularly useful for smothering flammable liquid fires or for wrapping round a person whose clothing is on fire. Fire blankets should generally be disposed of after use.
Fires involving both solids and liquids. Particularly good for small clothing fires and for chip and fat pan fires providing the blanket completely covers the fire.
If the blanket does not completely cover the fire, it will not be able to extinguish the fire.
How to use
Place carefully over the fire. Keep your hands shielded from the fire. Do not waft the fire towards you.
How it works
Smothers the fire and prevents oxygen getting to the fire.
