Every type of transport carries specific risks. Refuelling using liquids - such as petrol or diesel - or gases - such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) - are a particular risk. And electric cars also carry the additional risk of a Lithium-Ion battery fire which cannot be effectively extinguished by conventional fire extinguishers - only specialist extinguishers such as the Firechief Lith-Ex extinguisher is suitable.
A Powder extinguisher is a good all-round extinguisher to carry in your car. Alternatively, the Firechief Home & Travel Safety Pack combines everything that might be needed to cover most risks including a First Aid Kit, a Fire Blanket and a 1kg Powder Extinguisher.
