Fire Extinguisher Training
Your fire extinguishers are only as effective as the people using them.

The Cintas fire extinguisher training program includes:
- Overview of the fire protection equipment installed in your facility
- Review of proper procedures and fire evacuation routes
- Emergency preparedness training
- Alertness to fire hazards
- Review of the types of fire extinguishers and their proper use
- Identification of the classes of fires and how each is fought
- Indoor or outdoor hands-on experience
Know what you need to do even before fire occurs.
Contact us and a Cintas training professional will help you establish fire extinguisher training for your employees and advise you of the most current regulatory guidelines for proper workplace fire protection.
Don't forget to ask us about how our regular fire extinguisher services including placement, inspection and testing of on-site extinguishers can help you stay prepared for fire emergencies.
