This course is intended for workers who may be required to use a 10lb, 20lb or 30lb stored pressure or cartridge operated extinguisher to respond to a small fire. Participants learn the theory of fire, various types and classifications of fires and the proper use and handling of hand held fire extinguishers, including monthly inspection procedures. The course is comprised of approximately 1.5 hours of classroom instruction, re-inforced with 2.5 hours of practical hands-on LIVE FIRE exercises.
The student will experience the heat of a live fire while operating a real fire extinguisher to battle the flames. The Live Fire Trailer is designed to be used with propane or gas and is completely self-contained to ensure environmental stewardship.
