The Fire Extinguisher course is intended to provide people with information on fire prevention, evacuation and suppression. Students will learn about fire sciences, what can be done to put the fire out, different extinguisher characteristics and the type and amount of fire a particular extinguisher is designed to put out. Finally, we tie all the theory into a practical demonstration, allowing each student to deploy a fire extinguisher on a smoke simulator.

Live fire exercise may be allowed outside of Edmonton City limits, with a fire permit from the local Fire Department.
