About Us

Do you have fire extinguishers placed throughout your facilities? If so, you are one step closer to ensuring fire safety and meeting OSHA codes at your site. A fire extinguisher is as useful as the person operating it. If your employees do not know how to operate a fire extinguisher, we recommend you call USA Fire Extinguisher Training.

Prevent Panic

Schedule a fire extinguisher training for your employees with USA Fire Extinguisher Training? Although you cannot predict when a fire will break out, you can make sure your employees are ready to fight it. This will minimize fire injury, risk, and loss.

 

Benefits of fire extinguisher training:

  • Allows for deductions on your building’s insurance and General Liability premiums.
  • Training your employees can save lives, reduce loss of property, and minimize recovery time.
  • Person operating is less likely to hurt themselves while attempting to put out the fire.
  • Employees will feel more confident in the event of an emergency.
  • Learning fast response can be enough to diffuse a fire at the source and stop it from spreading.
  • Training ensures your employees know what fire extinguisher corresponds with which type of fire.

Fire Extinguisher Training

Ensure every employee receives proper training. Fire extinguisher training should be made available to all employees at the first opportunity.  It will ensure employees are confident and capable of extinguishing controllable fires. People panic when they are not confident in doing something.  Allowing employees to use an actual extinguisher will ensure they do not panic.

All training should have a lasting effect on everyone.  For this to happen, gathering up in a training room and playing DVD’s about using fire extinguishers will NOT happen. Your employees will become bored and inattentive. Hands-on training, ensure employees feel comfortable using a fire extinguisher in a real-life situation.

What you need is an on-site hands-on opportunity to put out virtual fire.  USA Fire Extinguisher Training uses a “State of The Art” virtual training system that puts an extinguisher in your hands, without the mess of Sodium Bicarbonate “Baking Soda,” or cost of refilling extinguishers or a potential for an incident.

Students will have the opportunity to extinguish virtual fires on a monitor with or without smoke.

They will practice how to PASS:

Pull the pin.

Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire.

Squeeze the trigger.

Sweep side to side.

Students will practice multiple times and ask questions of the instructor until they feel like they could put out a real fire.

Evacuation

Evacuating a building sometime is the best thing to do!!! Trying to suppress a fire with an extinguisher that will not or could not extinguish the fire can become a problem. A fire may become too large to put it out, and it may become time for your everyone to escape the building before it is too late.

Workplaces should have a Fire Safety Plan (FSP).  It should include evacuation routes that are posted. Establish specific outdoor meeting places so everyone can be accounted for in an emergency.  And many other parts.

We can evaluate your Evacuation Plan, while conducting your annual Evacuation Drills as well.

INTRODUCTION

We usually refer to fire as needing or having a Fire Triangle. Actually, it’s a tetrahedron, because there are four elements that must be present for a fire to exist. There must be Oxygen to sustain combustion, Heat to raise the material to its ignition temperature, Fuel to support the combustion and a Chemical Reaction between the other three elements.

The concept of Fire Prevention is based upon keeping these four elements separate.

TYPES OF FIRES

Not all fires are the same. Different fuels create different fires and require different types of fire extinguisher agents.

Some type of fire extinguishing agents can be used on more than one class of fire. Others have warnings where it would be dangerous for the operator to use a particular fire extinguisher agent.

TYPES OF FIRE EXTINGUISHERS

THE RULES FOR FIGHTING FIRES

Just remember the three A’s

Activate the building alarm system or notify the fire department by calling 911. Or, have someone else do this for you.

Assist any persons in immediate danger, or those incapable on there own, to exit the building, without risk to yourself.

Only after these two are completed, should you Attempt to extinguish the fire.

Only fight a fire:

A. The time to use a fire extinguisher is in the early, or incipient, stage of a fire. Once the fire starts to grow or spread, it is best to evacuate the building, closing doors or windows behind you.

B. If the fire is producing large amounts of thick, black smoke or chemical smoke, it may be best not to try to extinguish the fire. Neither should you attempt to extinguish the fire in a confined space. Outdoors, approach the fire with the wind at your back. Remember that all fires will product carbon monoxide and many fires will produce toxic gasses that can be fatal, even in small amounts.

C. You should always fight a fire with an exit or other means of escape at your back. If the fire is not quickly extinguished, you need to be able to get out quickly and avoid becoming trapped.

D. If you do not feel comfortable attempting to extinguish the fire, don’t try – get out and let the fire department do their job.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER USE

It is important to know the locations and the types of extinguishers in your workplace prior to actually using one.

Fire Extinguishers can be heavy, so it’s a good idea to practice picking up and holding an extinguisher to get an idea of the weight and feel.

Take time to read the operating instructions and warnings found on the fire extinguisher label. Not all fire extinguishers look alike.

Practice releasing the discharge hose or horn and aiming it at the base of an imagined fire. Do not pull the pin or squeeze the lever. This will break the extinguisher seal and cause it to lose pressure.

When it is time to use the extinguisher on a fire, Just remember to P.A.S.S.!

Pull the pin.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER INSPECTION

Like any mechanical device, fire extinguishers must be maintained on a regular basis to insure their proper operation. You, the owner or occupant of the property where fire extinguishers are located, are responsible for arranging your fire extinguishers’ maintenance.

Fire extinguishers must be inspected or given a “quick check” every 30 days. For most extinguishers, this is a job that you can easily do by locating the extinguishers in your workplace and answering the three questions to the right.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER MAINTENANCE

In addition, fire extinguishers must be maintained annually in accordance with local, state and national codes and regulations. This is a thorough examination of the fire extinguisher’s mechanical parts; fire extinguishing agent and the expellant gas. Your fire equipment professional is the ideal person to perform the annual maintenance because they have the appropriate servicing manuals, tools, recharge materials, parts, lubricants, and the necessary training and certifications.
