Portable fire extinguishers are required in many locations including businesses, schools, hotels and motels and just about any public assembly. Proper use of a portable fire extinguisher can put out a small fire or control it until the fire department arrives. Do you know how to use one? While operation of most portable fire extinguishers is simple, hands-on training is the best way to ensure timely and efficient operation in an emergency.
The Sugar Land Fire Department provides fire extinguisher training in April and November to businesses, schools, civic associations, and just about any interested group. The training includes a classroom presentation followed by hands-on, live fire training. Casual dress is encouraged for this class. The Sugar Land Fire Department supplies all training materials except for the extinguishers (extinguishers may be rented from a private company). Generally, one 10-pound ABC fire extinguisher for every four people participating in the live-fire training is required.
