Fire Extinguisher Training: Protecting Lives and Property
Fire extinguishers are worthless if your employees don’t know how to use them
Receive guided lessons in fire safety and how to handle an extinguisher.
If space allows, employees will practice shooting off the fire extinguishers themselves.
Fulfill OSHA and Insurance Requirements
Ensure your employees are trained to handle all different variables in an emergency.
What Our Classes Cover:
When to use an extinguisher
When not to use an extinguisher
Explanation of your company’s emergency evacuation plan
Explanation of good housekeeping practices (don't block extinguishers, don't hang stuff on extinguishers or fire sprinklers, don't use frayed extension cords, don't leave open liquids sitting around, etc.)
How long it takes from the start of a fire to when the flames will reach the roof of the building
How to use an extinguisher
Reminding employees to use the same practices at home - explain evacuation plans to your children periodically, keep at least one extinguisher in the home, and test your smoke detectors/change batteries to make sure they are always in working condition
Reminder to always pull the fire alarm in the event of a fire, even if it is manageable by fire extinguisher. The fire department will still need to check that the fire is completely out and all hazards are cleared.
