Industry Risks

Bus fires happen often, they also regularly make it onto the news due to the affect upon traffic and people. Many owners and operators never consider the fire risks and consequences of not being adequately equipped should a fire occur. Bus fires can start with a small fuel or oil leak onto a hot area in the engine compartment or due to an electrical fault in either the engine compartment or inside the cabin of the bus.

Most drivers of buses will not see the fire start and only react when the fire is already too advanced. The majority of buses have fire extinguishers however by the time the fire is attended to it has already become too large for most extinguishers to be effective.

Consequences

Without fast suppression, one of the most prevalent consequences of a fire anywhere in the bus is damage. With the high likelihood of the fire spreading, the damage may not only be contained to the ignition area, but to any areas reached by the fire or the smoke. If the fire and smoke spreads into the cabin, there is a high risk of injury or death to the driver and passengers.

An undetected fire can cause a serious hazard in traffic if an essential component of the bus fails while in motion, risking not only the lives of the people inside the bus but also surrounding people, vehicles and other property.

The BlazeCut Difference

While fire extinguishers are affordable and easy to install (and we recommend having at least two installed in every bus) there is always a high risk of getting burnt when opening the engine compartment of a bus when a fire has occurred. In most cases the chance of opening the engine access door to use the extinguisher is next to impossible due to heat.

BlazeCut Fire systems automatically actuate in the engine compartment when a fire occurs, extinguishing the fire in seconds leaving very minimal damage to the bus and keeping people safe. With small buses and using our smaller systems, it is possible to fit them yourself and in most cases installation takes less than an hour. With larger buses it is recommended to have a professional install it for you. BlazeCut can offer a fully certified R107 powdered bus system.

BlazeCut offers ready-to-install fire suppression solutions ideal for a wide range of small buses.
