Fire blankets provide an addition piece of fire equipment which can be used to attack or extinguish small A & B class fires (rubbish and flammable liquids). They are ideal for oven top cooking oil and fat fires.
The fire blanket can also be used as a thermal barrier against radiant heat and to extinguish clothes that may be on fire.
