Fire Extinguisher Training

Properly using a fire extinguisher can prevent small fires from becoming large fires, and can save lives and property. It is recommended to practice using fire extinguishers so that if they are ever needed, the person operating it will feel comfortable doing so.


FREE FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING PROGRAM

This two-part program includes a presentation of fire safety and how to operate fire extinguishers, followed by hands-on training where participants can extinguish a small, simulated fire. The length of the training depends on the number of participants. In general, the training (including the classroom portion) takes about one hour. 

  • Participants must be 18 years of age or older to operate the fire extinguisher trainer. Participants under the age of 18 will need written permission from their legal guardian.

  • Fire extinguisher training requires a minimum of 10 attendees.

  • It is best if training takes place at the facility of the requesting organization. In order to use the fire extinguisher, the organization must have a flat surface on which to place the pan. It is also preferable if the location of the outdoor training is near an electrical outlet. Fire extinguisher training can take place at fire stations 3, 5, and 6 if the business location is not able to be used (space is limited to 25 people).

  • The fire extinguisher training may have to be cancelled or rescheduled due to inclement weather.

  • Fire extinguisher training can be scheduled Monday through Friday between 9 a.m.-noon or 1-4 p.m.

  • It is recommended that fire extinguisher training requests be submitted at least four weeks in advance, although requests can be made at any time.

  • Submitting a request for a fire extinguisher training does not guarantee that one of the times you request can be filled.

  • After your request has been submitted, a member of the fire department will contact you to schedule a time for your fire extinguisher training. Please allow five business days for processing your request, although it is likely that your request will be processed within 48 hours.
