The importance of Fire Extinguisher Awareness training

Everyone in the workplace needs to understand that using the wrong type of extinguisher on a fire can make the situation worse. It is important that people learn about where to locate a fire extinguisher and how to use it before there is a fire, so that they can act confidently and correctly when they need to. Fire extinguisher training give people the knowledge and confidence with fire extinguishers that can save lives, reduce injuries from fire and reduce damage to property. Fire extinguishers don’t put out fires on their own.

Who is Fire Extinguisher Awareness training for?
