A flapper is a wildland firefighting tool that resembles a broom
with metal bristles. It is also called a swatter or a beater. It is
designed for extinguishing minor fires in rural areas such as
heaths. A flapper is built with a long handle and a series of
lamellas which allows firefighters to stand well back from the
fire. The lamellas are constructed in either rubber or steel,
though practically any other fireproof material could be used.
The fire is attacked from the wind-side by lightly swatting out the
flames or glows with the thick flap. When the flapper hits the
ground oxygen supply to the fire is stopped and the fire will be
extinguished. Where ground cover is short, the flapper can be
dragged along the fire edge to smother the fire. If used too hard
it can add more oxygen to the fire. It is often recommended to
either hose water on the area or keep it under observation, as
there will always be a risk of it flaring up later.
Due to a flapper's small size it is unfit for use against a blazing
forest fire or large burning fields. The tool's design makes it
only suitable for minor flames or glows within a limited area. For
fire fighting in larger areas it is much more convenient to take
out hoses from a fire engine and spray selected areas.
Alternatively a water cannon from a water tender can be used.
A flapper is often part of the standard equipment on a fire engine
and may also be set up inside and around forests and at heaths in
order to take immediate action if a fire is seen.
The flapper's technique has been developed from using a wet green
pine bough to swat the fire known as "wet sacking" a fire.
