When fire extinguishers are provided and made available for employee use, annual training is essential and required per state and federal law including OSHA. We offer a program to satisfy the required codes and educate your employees in the use and care of your fire extinguishers.
Our program consists of classroom training, a demonstration, and a short video. It can also be expanded to include a live controlled fire where your employees will begin to understand how to use an extinguisher in a real fire situation. They will also learn the limitations of an extinguisher and how different sizes and types should be used depending on the hazard. Code compliance and the safety of your employees are paramount to the protection of life, property and your business.
The ideal class size for employee training is 20.

Prior to providing the training, we will discuss with you your company’s policy as to when an employee should use an extinguisher and the protocol for notifying the fire department and all necessary personnel. This will enable us to enforce your policy during the training session.
We will stress the importance of life safety and the proper application, size, and type in order to reduce the chance of injury. Our program can be customized to meet your individual needs.
