1 What is Fire?

2 What we will learn today We will learn about the fire triangle and how we can prevent a fire from happening

3 We have already learned that: Fire is not like we see on television It is very hot, moves very fast and makes everything very dark

4 We have also learned that: It takes three things to cause a fire: –Heat - or something that is hot –Fuel - or something that will burn –Oxygen - the air that is all around us

5 Do we know what a triangle is? Three sided shape - needs all three sides to be connected to be a triangle

6 The same way that the three lines have to be connected to form a triangle, the heat, fuel and oxygen have to be connected to cause a fire. Heat Oxygen Fuel

7 We call this a FIRE TRIANGLE Heat Air Fuel

8 Fire Triangle The red side is the HEAT side.

9 Fire Triangle The yellow side is the FUEL side.

10 Fire Triangle The blue side is the OXYGEN side.

11 Fire Triangle

12 Remove the HEAT sources, and there is nothing hot to start the fire If we remove any one side of the triangle, the fire cannot happen

13 Remove the FUEL sources, and there is nothing to burn. If we remove any one side of the triangle, the fire cannot happen

14 Remove the OXYGEN and there is nothing to feed the fire. If we remove any one side of the triangle, the fire cannot happen

15 Good fires and bad fires A good fire is one that is used carefully and under controlled situations

16 Fire in a grill - good fire or bad fire?

17 House fire - good fire or bad fire?

18 Fire in a fireplace - good fire or bad fire?

19 Forest fire - good fire or bad fire?

20 Camp fire - good fire or bad fire?

21 REMEMBER - You can prevent fires by not playing with matches or lighters.
