  • Fire Extinguisher Training


Confine small emergencies in a facility (Fire Extinguisher)

The fire extinguisher training course covers the skills and knowledge for preparing for emergency situations, identifying and assessing an emergency, safely confining emergencies, using initial response equipment and reporting on the facility's emergency response.

If you are an occupant of a facility who is required to have first attack firefighting skills for small emergencies, such as small fires that can be controlled using a fire extinguisher; chemical spills that can be controlled using facility personal protective clothing and equipment and a spill kit; or a vehicle accident where there is no significant injury or damage, then this course is a must for you.

All aspects of this fire safety training course will be undertaken in accordance with legislative requirements, organisational policies and procedures and accepted safe practices including those covered in Australian Standard (AS) 3745 and AS4083 for facilities and occupants.

Occupants are people attending a facility on a permanent or temporary basis such as an employee, contractor, student or resident, but not a visitor or patient and a facility is a building, structure or workplace that is, or maybe, occupied by people (occupants).
