Where firefighters come to talk training

Fire Safety... Please watch!
Please read the following, and then open the attachment.
This is a dramatic video (30-second, very short) about how to deal with
a common kitchen fire ... of Oil in a frying pan.
Please read the following introduction and then watch the show ... It's a real eye-opener!!
Perhaps you'll want to send this one on to your family and friends.
The results got the attention of the students. The water, being heavier
than the oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly becomes superheated.
The EXPLOSIVE force of the steam blows the burning oil up and out.
On the open field, it became a thirty foot high fireball that resembled a
Nuclear Blast. Inside the confines of a kitchen, the fire ball hits the Ceiling
and fills the entire room. Also, do not throw sugar or flour on a grease fire.
One cup creates the explosive force of two sticks of dynamite.
