Fire Safety and Extinguisher Use

The Fire Safety course is intended to provide people with information on fire prevention, evacuation, and suppression. Students will learn about fire sciences, what can be done to put the fire out, different extinguisher characteristics and the type and amount of fire a particular extinguisher is designed to put out.

Finally, we tie all the theory into a practical demonstration, allowing each student to deploy a fire extinguisher on a live flame.
