Fire Extinguisher Training
This training is usually delivered in conjunction with the Fire Warden Training but can be delivered separately also.
In any business, it is important to know the locations and the types of extinguishers in your workplace prior to actually using them.
Fire Extinguishers can be heavy, so it’s a good idea to practice picking up and holding an extinguisher to get an idea of the weight and feel.
Take time to read the operating instructions and warnings found on the fire extinguisher label. Not all fire extinguishers look alike.
Practice releasing the discharge hose or horn and aiming it at the base of an imagined fire. Do not pull the pin or squeeze the lever. This will break the extinguisher seal and cause it to lose pressure.
