Being a FF I am the professional.

Personally I'm not going to stand idle while something is destroyed if I can help it.

Sent from my underground lair.

And You Wont

Put out the fire on my vehicle with either water or a fire extinguisher until the vehicle is a total lost or someone else's property or life is in danger. If you try it will be over my dead body. My brother in law is a battalion chief and my sis and bro volunteers. My sis is also a member of one FEMA's Urban SAR teams. They agree with me. We have all heard horror stories of all the problems vehicles have after even after a small fire. The reason Halon is dangerous to humans is it takes all the O2 out of the air.

Back in the good ole days when race cars had carbs and simple electrical systems it was just easier to rip everything out. Then you would start from scratch because corner workers didnt have Halon and things just never worked correctly with cobbled together wiring half new and half undamaged.

With all the computers, chips etc in a modern vehicle I dont want it repaired. It will never all work correctly. Burn baby burn.

Cool. My dad is an engineer. So what?

We are off topic enough.



webb, I don't see a problem with mounting one in your Jeep nor see any issue with using one. Just be sure to get the correct one for its intended use.

All military vehicles have fire extinguishers in then, for use on personnel not the vehicle. Just food for thought.

I'm looking at doing this to the back of the passenger seat. It would put it within reach of the driver.
It's a Safecraft fire extinguisher with Brey Krause quick release mount.

Its Expensive

One because of the halon and two because the mount has to be secure enough to say put and retain the fire bottle. Since its used on the track the G load can exceed a 50gs easy in shunt.

A piece of paper has been know to kill an occupant of a car in a high g crash.

I'm thinking the sudden stop had more to do with it.

Cut an artery and the someone in the car died if I remember correctly from the boo Motorsport Medicine(I think thats title) . Might have hit their windpipe. I currently cant find the book. Interesting book with nice charts about the number of g's you pull in an accident at different distances from a barrier at different speeds.

They survived the sudden stop but the paper got them.

I think of the extinguisher as a tool to suppress the flames to help get people out of the car. I've heard horrific stories about people stuck in their seat belts while the car is on fire, children stuck in their car seats while the mother escapes the flames. Maybe someday my fire extinguisher will save someone's life. I don't care if the car burns up after everyone's out, a total loss on the vehicle is better anyways for an insurance claim.
