Afternoon course

Just back from an hour course learning how to work portable fire fighting equipment. This included spending half an hour standing in the rain getting to have a try with three extinguishers, Water, CO2, and Foam, and also trying a fire blanket. They had a special extension for the office bin fire that fitted on top and made it into a chip pan fire that you try the blanket with. The instructor also demonstrated a powder extinguisher but we did not get to try that as it makes a huge mess - even with a short blast. Worked very fast though.
