Fire Extinguisher Training

Live Fire Extinguisher Training

Train your staff on proper fire extinguisher use and at the same time meet OSHA compliance regulations*. For initial and annual employer provided extinguisher education and training, this program, added to your emergency action plan, will increase personnel and workplace safety.

Using a controlled, propane-based fire to recreate an incipient stage fire, our certified trainers and state of the art system is designed to teach the PASS method in the cleanest, safest way possible at our location or yours. Our system uses readily available air and water, instead of costly dry chemicals.

  • Effective Training- Train as many individuals as needed on Class A, B or C fires at four different levels of difficulty to challenge trainees.
  • Safe Training-We fully control the intensity of the flames and can utilize the emergency stop switch on the handheld controller at any time.
  • Cost Effective-No longer a need to discharge and recharge costly dry-chemical or CO2 extinguishers.
  • Clean-We use clean burning propane gas to generate flames with no cleanup required with chemical extinguishers.
  • On the Record-We help with documentation for OSHA and Insurance Company requirements as well as track the performance of trainees each year.
