Using the fire blanket smothers the fire cutting off the fire’s oxygen supply either putting it out of stalling it until more effective equipment can be reached.
What other uses does it have?
You can use the fire blanket to cover the burning material. Hold the fire blanket in front you protecting your body, hands and face then cover the object trying to leave no gaps of oxygen to fuel the fire. Cut the supply of electricity or fuel type power and contact the fire department. Leaving it covered for at least 30 minutes should be sufficient to let the material cool.
