For the classes of fires that the oil and gas facilities are prone to, the BC fire extinguishers range is the best suited type that can support your firefighting efforts. These extinguishers are designed to manage fires that are triggered through wiring, electrical equipment, ordinary combustibles and flammable liquids and gases.

In addition to that other high sensitivity smoke alarm systems can be used which will provide an early warning and can be installed in critical areas.
The fire alarms are a key inclusion in the firefighting system that can prevent fires from occurring in such high-risk environments. Ensure that they comply with all the defined regulatory codes and compliances.
