We don't want anyone to be faced with a situation where they use a fire extinguisher for the first time during a real fire. That's why PFA's specialists are happy to work with businesses, homeowner's associations and other organizations or groups to provide free training on how to effectively use a fire extinguisher to safely escape a fire.
Thanks to a Firehouse Subs grant, PFA purchased a laser-driven, simulated fire extinguisher from Bullex. Coupled with a digital training screen, trainees will be able to feel the weight of a real fire extinguisher as they use it to "put out" different types of simulated -- albeit life-like -- fires.
Trainings with this simulator can take place in a classroom, conference room, or other similar setting. PFA's trainers bring everything to you, saving you the time and hassle of purchasing real fire extinguishers to conduct employee trainings.
Topics covered include:
- How an extinguisher works.
- When to use an extinguisher and when not to use one.
- How to use an extinguisher effectively.
- Different types of extinguishers and their uses.
Note: Poudre Fire Authority does not supply, recharge or service fire extinguishers.
