Hands-On Live Fire Training Classes!
Live Fire Training Classes
We offer live fire training classes that will help you and your employees learn the different classifications of fire extinguishers, familiarize you with chemical types and uses, learn how and when to use an extinguisher with “hands-on” extinguishing of a fire and certify all participants when completed. Fire extinguishers are one element of a fire response plan, but the primary element is safe escape. Every business should have a fire escape plan and working smoke alarms and we review this as well. Your business may now also qualify for lower insurance rates (check with your insurance company).

Portable Fire Extinguishers
A portable fire extinguisher can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or containing it until the fire department arrives. Because fire grows and spreads so rapidly, the number one priority is to get out safely.
Use a portable fire extinguisher when the fire is confined to a small area, such as a wastebasket, and is not growing; everyone has exited the building; the fire department has been called or is being called; and the room is not filled with smoke.
To operate a fire extinguisher, remember the word PASS:
- Pull the pin. Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle, pointing away from you, and release the locking mechanism.
- Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.
- Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.
- Sweep the nozzle from side-to-side.
