Fire Protection And Prevention

Fire Protection and Prevention

Accident damage, unless massive, can be repaired. But if fire takes hold of your car it will destroy it. With so many flammable materials and fuel sources, fire rips through a car in minutes and, by the time the fire brigade arrives, it will be unrestorable.

Fire requires two things: something flammable, such as fuel, and a source of ignition. Gasoline is the obvious scapegoat for vehicle fires, but it's often not the original source. For example, tip a few drops of gasoline on a hot exhaust manifold and usually it will harmlessly evaporate. Tip a few drops of brake fluid and it may burst into angry flames
