Re: [DML] Re: Importance of a Fire Extinguisher



Absolutely. Why play with fire? 
Never had a fire, but I had gasoline gushing out on the ground once, many years ago, during a refill. Actually, David, you were there. Several of us were caravanning back from the Brown's Island show in Richmond. No fire, fortunately, and I got the car home ok. And I do always carry an extinguisher. All the more, since half my fuse sockets are melted and rewired.

At all AACA events cars (and motorcycles!)are not allowed onto the field unless 
they have a fire extinguisher. As I see it, it is not so much for me, I take 
care of my car, it is for the poor bastard nearby who caches fire and I put it 
out so it doesn't spread to me! Now who is going to pay to refill or replace my 
fire extinguisher? No good deed goes unpunished. Gary forgot about when his fan 
jumper melted and almost caught fire. Not an uncommon event in a Delorean I am 
told. Point is having a fire extinguisher can keep a bad day from becoming much 
worse! As for Halon, yes, they are nice but if all you had was a bucket of 
sewerage you would use it! As for cell phones, you get spoiled when you are in 
an urban area. In between big cities there are a lot of dead zones. And by the 
time anyone gets to you all there will be are some smoking S/S panels arranged 
in the shape of what once was a car. Did anyone mention fiberglass melts before 
it burns. What remains ain't pretty. Moral 
 of the story; carry a fire extinguisher, it doesn't matter what kind as long as 
it is large enough to put the fire out.
