Fire Extinguisher Training

Most fires have one thing in common, they start small. When a fire is small it gives the best opportunity to utilize the available fire extinguisher training and extinguish the fire before extensive damage or injuries occur.

Unless you are familiar with how to use different types of fire extinguishers and are able to select the appropriate extinguisher to use you will not be able to safely or confidently extinguish a fire using a portable fire extinguisher.
