DID YOU KNOW?
fire demo
TITLE 29 OF THE CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS REQUIRES THAT THE EMPLOYERS PROVIDE EDUCATION ON THE USE OF PORTABLE FIRE EXTINGUISHERS.
ABC FIRE PROTECTION, INC. IN NEWARK, CALIFORNIA CAN HELP YOU WITH OUR FIRE PROTECTION PROGRAM, WITH OUR HANDS-ON FIRE TRAINING DEMONSTRATIONS.
Each year 70 to 80 thousand workplaces experience a serious fire. About 200 employees per year die in these fires. Another 5,000 are injured. Property losses exceed two billion annually. The good news is that only 15 percent of the workplace fires result from a catastrophic failure of equipment. And 85 percent are caused by factors related to human behavior. This means that by being proactive with a simple fire prevention plan and program, you can greatly reduce the likelihood of a fire in your workplace.
fire extinguisher training
Fire safety becomes everyone’s job at a worksite. Employers should train workers about fire hazards in the workplace and about what to do in a fire emergency. If you want your workers to evacuate, you should train them to escape. If you expect your workers to use firefighting equipment, you should give them appropriate equipment and then train them to use the equipment safely.
ABC Fire Protection will perform on-site Fire Training. All work will follow the codes set by SB-198, by licensed personnel with years of training experience.
We offer two different fire training demonstrations:
Basic 1: AVAILABLE TO EXSISTING CUSTOMERS ONLY. Call for more information.
