    Electrical fires are best tackled with?

    • B.

      Foam fire extinguisher

    Correct Answer
    A. CO2 fire extinguisher
    Explanation
    CO2 fire extinguishers are the best option for tackling electrical fires because they do not conduct electricity. When an electrical fire occurs, it is crucial to use a fire extinguisher that does not further fuel the fire or pose a risk of electrocution. CO2 fire extinguishers work by displacing oxygen, removing the fire's source of fuel. This type of extinguisher is specifically designed for electrical fires and is safe to use on electrical equipment and live electrical fires.

This posture reduces the risk of straining or injuring the back muscles. It also allows for better control and stability while lifting, minimizing the chances of accidents or dropping the load. Keeping the back straight helps to engage the core muscles, providing additional support and protection to the spine during the lifting process.
