Fire Extinguisher Training

"Where the employer has provided portable fire extinguishers for employee use in the workplace, the employer shall also provide an educational program to familiarize employees with the general principles of fire extinguisher use and the hazards involved with the incipient stage fire fighting." - OSHA 29 CFR 1910.157(g)

Studies have shown that when an individual is Properly trained on the use of fire extinguishers they are 2-1/2 times more effective when extinguishing a fire.

The Tryon and Columbus Fire Departments have joined forces to provide the most effective, least ecologically damaging portable fire extinguisher training using a new state-of-the-art system built by BullEx. Local individuals, service clubs, and businesses (see names on banner) joined forces to purchase the equipment.

Members of both the Columbus and Tryon Fire Departments will bring the equipment and hands-on training to your business, club, or organization free of charge.
Contact either department for more information.
