Answer :

The following ways are adopted by fire fighters to combat fires:

● They use different fire extinguishers depending upon the type of fire.


For example: water can be used when cloth, wood, paper are on fire but can’t be used in case of electric fires or oil and petrol fires. So in such cases chemical retardants or other fire extinguishers are used such as CO2.


● They sometimes use air support to carry large amount of water or chemical retardants which is not possible with fire trucks.


● They cut off the fire lines to create fire breaks so that fire can be prevented from spreading.
