Classroom Education

Indoor classroom education is geared to educate faculty on the science behind hand-operated fire extinguishers. This first part of the program functions to give employees the background they need to competently handle a fire-extinguisher for the second part of the course and in the event of an actual fire. Our classroom education program includes a certified instructor, literature, a video demonstration, props, a written test, and a certificate of completion.

WHAT THE PROGRAM COVERS

The education portion of our course typically covers:

  • Basic fire safety concepts
  • Emergency preparedness
  • Employer’s procedure in case of fire
  • Fire class identification — how different fires burn differently,
    and how each is fought
  • Types of fire extinguishers
  • Matching extinguishers to fire class
  • Fire protection equipment installed at their place of employment
  • Fires situation assessment — making the fight or flight decision
  • Home fire safety concepts
  • Various suppression agents
  • Proper use of a fire extinguisher
FACILITY CONSIDERATIONS

Every course we teach is geared specifically to our client’s facility. Our certified, factory-trained technicians travel to your test site with the appropriate equipment and customized course material unique to your facility. The classroom education portion will cover the specific types of fires your facility is most likely to come into contact with and will cover the unique fire protection equipment that is installed in your facility. While we will cover general fire safety as well, our courses are custom-tailored to suit your specific facility and industry.

What People Are Saying

What People Are Saying

“We were very pleased with the fire safety training that you provided our nursing home staff. In fact, as pleased as we were with last year’s training, you still managed to further impress us with the enhanced improvements of you equipment. The setup of your equipment in our parking lot looked very professional and helped advertise to our clients, families, and community that we take safety very seriously at our facility. We look forward to scheduling this again next year with your company.”

“I thought the class was better than I anticipated it being. I sensed that our instructor was very knowledgeable and also has a passion for what he was doing. I’m not sure if I had ever thought about the different types of fires and the agents needed to put out a fire before taking this class. It is easy to think that in the event of a fire the first thing to do is just throw water on it. That could prove disastrous in some situations. Because of this presentation, I feel that if a fire should occur, I would be able to make the decisions necessary to handle the situation safely.”
