You need more than just a desire to help people. Traditional fire extinguishing methods involve removing the fuel, heat, or oxygen.In more recent years, a fourth component –.Fuel, oxygen and heat join together in a sustained chemical reaction. The fire and rescue service is not for the meek or timid or for those who lose control during times of crisis.The personal rewards and satisfaction received from the volunteer emergency services are often beyond description. If nothing is done to ventilate the room or cool the air, this condition leads to flashover.Flashover is the sudden, simultaneous ignition of everything in a room. At this stage, a fire extinguisher can control the fire.With the initial flame as a heat source, additional fuel ignites. Some ecosystems depend on periodic fires. In the mythology of virtually every culture, fire is a sacred substance that gives life or power. The size of the fire increases and the plume reaches the ceiling. The heated air is less dense, and rises, while cooler air descends. And you need to have the time, for training sessions, meetings, emergency responses and other duties.
