Any new extinguishers will be red and it is the coloured label which shows the
contents and the type of fire on which it should be used.

FIRE BLANKET.. or..

Prior to 1st Jan 1997, the code of practice for fire extinguishers in the UK was BS 5423, which advised the colour coding of fire extinguishers as follows:

Water - Red

Foam - Cream

Dry Powder - Blue

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) - Black

Halon - Green (now 'illegal' except for a few exceptions such as the Police, Armed Services and Aircraft).

New extinguishers should conform to BS EN 3, which requires that the entire body of the extinguisher be coloured red. A zone of colour of up to 5% of the external area can be used to identify the contents using the old colour coding shown above.

Even transporting Halon was banned in rotary winged aircraft many, many, years ago.

Well LH, since all well trained firefighters got it wrong and I have no firefighting training, I give up.
