Yes, but it is almost impossible to extinguish Breachpen. The only way is to sever the rod below to burning area and we do not recommend this at all since there currently is no safe way of doing this.
We recommend using Breachpen within 2 years of the day it ships. If they are stored in a dry cool place, they can last for years, however we recommend rotating these out via training to ensure that operators are always trained and ready to go with the Breachpen.
The safety equipment we recommend is outlined in more detail in our Breachpen Operator’s Manual but the minimum safety equipment we recommend is a long sleeve top, pants, eye protection, foot protection, and protective gloves. In addition, we suggest OSHA Shade Tint 5 Glasses and a fire suppression system.
