Effects of fire

Effects of fires determined damaging factors that lead to the human and material damage. Fire hazards (OFP) are divided into primary and secondary. The primary fire damaging factors include: • Open flames and sparks; • Increased ambient temperature and subjects; • toxic products of combustion, smoke; • smoke and poor visibility; • lower concentration of oxygen. The most dangerous of them are toxic products of combustion and thermal decomposition, which are red-hot mass of up to 300-400 ° C, a mixture of highly toxic chemical agents, paralyzing the respiratory man.
