Class Information

The fire extinguisher class is offered in a classroom setting where your group or employees will be taught the basics of how to distinguish the different types of fires and fire extinguishers, how to inspect a fire extinguisher and how and when to use them.

A live burn is also offered, your group or employees will have the opportunity to put out a live fire with fire extinguishers. For a live burn, your class must have 10 attendees minimum.
