Let the Scouts have the opportunity to look at different types of extinguisher and then say what type of fire they should be used on
4 main types of extinguisher (Water, Foam, Carbon Dioxide, Dry Powder) plus a fire blanket
Give the Scouts a talk through the types of fire extinguisher. What they look like and how they work.
Leave the four extinguishers in the middle of the room and ask the Scouts to stand behind the extinguisher they think they would use to put out each fire (call out things like electrical, petrol, cooking oil, paper, wood, fabric, paraffin)
