Fire Extinguisher Training

This course utilizes live fire scenarios and actual fire extinguishing equipment. Training includes a lecture followed by a short video and then individual "hands-on training."

Training can be arranged in various locations on campus and will be scheduled. If you are interested in attending the next session of this training, please contact the Campus Safety Officer schwalbe@uwosh.edu at x4484.

NOTICE:

This course utilizes live fire scenarios and actual fire extinguishing equipment.

  • Participants may be briefly exposed to fire, smoke and intense heat in a controlled environment.
  • Participants clothing may pick up smoke or soot during the training exercise.
  • Participants with respiratory ailments should use their judgment to excuse themselves from any portion of the training that may be potentially harmful to their well-being.

 

One of the purposes of this training is to give participants a sensation of extinguishing a fire insofar that a fire can be safely controlled in a training situation. Participants should feel free to excuse themselves from the hands-on use of the fire extinguisher part of the training if they feel they will be harmed in any way.
