NTIS: PB/268-769 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :16 pages
This manual is for use by mine operating personnel and vehicle manufacturers in the selection and proper use of automatic fire protection systems for underground metal and nonmetal mining vehicles. Most currently available systems are manually operated, dry chemical fire suppression systems. When properly designed, installed, and maintained, these systems have proved to be effective both in fire suppression and in withstanding the rugged mine environment. Portable fire extinguishers and manually actuated systems have provided adequate protection for most of the reported fire incidents.
