Fire extinguisher training is available from the Palatine Fire Department. If your group or business wants to learn the proper use of fire extinguishers in controlling incipient-stage fires, call us at 847-202-6340 to set up training. (2021 Cost Schedule) We’ll bring out a program that will explain the different types of fires, how to select the proper extinguisher based on those fire types, and general rules for safely using extinguishers. Finally, everyone will get the opportunity to practice using a portable extinguisher on a live fire in our training prop.
A great time to hold this training is when your extinguishers are due for replacement or testing. We prefer to use the extinguishers you have on hand at your facility (when appropriate) so that your employees are familiar with the equipment they would have to use in an emergency.
