Fire Extinguisher Training From Northland Fire & Safety
Contrary to what you might have seen in the movies, using an extinguisher isn’t as simple as pointing the nozzle. Most people have never used a fire extinguisher or even picked up a fire extinguisher. Northland Fire & Safety’s hands-on training course will teach you how to safely and effectively extinguish a small fire at your workplace or at home. You’ll begin your course with a brief video and a basic quiz about information covered in the video, followed by hands-on instruction that explores the rules of fighting fires. Each person will have the opportunity to use a fire extinguisher provided by Northland Fire & Safety to extinguish a small fire in a burn pan. Upon completion of the fire extinguisher training, Northland Fire & Safety will provide a Certificate of Completion for each employee that went through the training. Business owners appreciate the certificates because they usually go in the employee’s personnel file as proof of safety training. The video, quiz, question-and-answer and hands-on training generally takes less than 45 minutes depending on the amount of people in attendance.
A fire extinguisher is one of those necessary safety items you hope you never have to use—but you should still know when and how to use it. By the end of your course, you’ll be more comfortable to deal with a situation if one arises.
