When it comes to understanding body armor there can be confusion over which type of body armor protects against which type of ammunition.  Understanding the NIJ 0101.06 armor protection levels is clearly explained.  The term "Bullet Proof" is a widely used term that is inaccurate and paints a picture that it cannot be penetrated.  Any body armor has the potential to be penetrated.  There are various levels of protection that must be adhered to in the law enforcement world.  The (Justice Technology Information Center) JTIC Understanding NIJ 0101.06 Armor Protection Levels is a snapshot of the projectile threats and classification of body armor related to these threats.  Here is NIJ complete info on Body Armor


Fire Extinguishers

It is important to choose the correct fire extinguisher to properly put out a fire.  You need to match the potential threat with the proper type and class.   


It is important to match the right fire extinguisher with the type of fire that you could potentially be dealing with in your workplace or home.  Each extinguishing agent works differently to put out a fire.  It’s easy to determine the type of extinguisher that you need simply by knowing what materials could potentially be burning.  They are listed by a letter designation, A, B. or C.
