    I wonder if they got out alive. It probably coated their lungs and suffocated them.

    Ummm
    They should probably go get their lungs checked...if it is like a normal fire extinguisher they most likely have tiny shards in their lungs now

    Foams are apparently the extinguishing agents used for fuel fires. Wikipedia says that AFFF foam is the most common in portable extinguishers and it contains flour tensides which can accumulate in the human body.

    Hmm, you were right - maybe they should have gotten checked out after that unless they just stood there the whole time. I personally would`ve been surprised and gotten the hell out of there pretty fast though.

    "Surfactants, also known as tensides, are wetting agents that lower the surface tension of a liquid..."

    Flour tensides are used in the extinguishers, so I`m guessing that they just put flour in there to lower the surface tension of the liquids in it.

    I guess that the flour can be inhaled and accumulate in your lungs, and I sure as hell wouldn`t want flour in my lungs. They wouldn`t have shards in their lungs, they would have flour in their lungs. You were right either way lol.

    It`s not foam it is a dry chemical extinguishing agent rated for class B and C fires simillar to what you will find in a common house hold fire extinguisher.

    Well, that`s *one* way to put out a fire.

    I suppose a couple people with powder in their lungs is way better than a couple dozen people caught in an explosion.

    I had always wondered what the fire system in a gas station was like. Thanks ;-)

    I believe Legacy15 is referring to Halon gas. It used to be used in computer rooms & other such confined spaces containing electrical stuff. It would drown out the oxygen so you had to know where to find an exit fast if it went off. Think they banned it some years ago though.

    The button is usually located on the front of the store near the counter. I`ve never seen one on the island.

    Actually a halon system when activated releases an engineered gas that interrupts the chemical reaction and stops combustion. There are many different kinds but all are extremely toxic and production has stopped. These systems can still be found in government facilities and other high value locations. A CO2 system when activated will displace the oxygen in a confined area thus stopping combustion.

    They would probably have flour in their lungs, not shards. Shards is a word usually used in reference to shards of glass or pottery. Particles of flour or even bits of flour may have gotten into their lungs, but not shards.

    NAF_S_III is no longer used. This is most likely PYRO-CHEM ABC Multi-Purpose. The fire protection system at this station was most likely an older configuration with a fire pull station next to the pump. The "shut off" or "emergency stop" will not set off the fire protection system. Halon 1211 is an awesome fire suppression chemical but, to many people don`t know how to use it.
