TEST OF FIRE FIGHTING FOR LIVE LINE ELECTRIC EQUIPMENT

Fighting of fires in cars on electrified lines normally requires the cutting of power. Damage can be increased substantially while waiting for confirmation that power has been disconnected. This study was concerned with the possibility of fighting fires with the power system energized. Various equipment was sprinkled with differing nozzle patterns and using water and other extinguishing materials. The results are expected to be reflected in the fire fighting equipment to be provided in long tunnels and the extinguishers to be carried on electric cars and locomotives.
