Basic Need of Fire Triangle

Fire Fighting

What is fire?

Fire is the rapid oxidation of a material in the exothermic chemical process of combustion, releasing heat, light, and various reaction products.


F – Find – where is fire, location to be identified

I  – Inform – All crew on board by fire Alarm to alert them and get aid from them fighting fire

R – Restrict– do not allow to spread to further compartment by boundary cooling, shutting the compartment on fire

E – Extinguish– by isolating, cutting off supply, smothering, starving etc, switch it off

What is Fire Triangle and Which are the thing which is responsible for Fire?


The fire triangles or combustion triangles are simple models for understanding the necessary ingredients for most fires. The triangle illustrates the three elements a fire needs to ignite: heat, fuel, and an oxidizing agent (usually oxygen).

So there are three things which could cause fire.

1 fuel

2 air

3 heat

Now, if we remove one side of triangle then what happen?

If we remove one side of triangle then fire will extinguish completely.

Removal of fuel – starvation

Removal of  oxygen – smothering

Removal of temperature – cooling.
