Fire Extinguisher Operations
A portable fire extinguisher can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or containing it until the fire department arrives, but portable extinguishers have limitations. Because fire grows and spreads so rapidly, the priority is to get out safely. Keeping fire extinguishers is just one element of a fire response plan, but the primary element is safe escape. This is why it’s important to have a fire escape plan and working smoke alarms.
This training covers the standards for both the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regarding portable fire extinguisher use during emergencies. Code officials are charged with ensuring that occupancies are properly outfitted with fire extinguishers and that they are placed in the right locations so we’ll identify where they should be placed within facilities.
