Fire Extinguisher Training

Apart from the fact that it is a legal requirement under the health & safety regulations that fire safety training is provided to all employees, it has also been proven time and time again that a well-trained workforce not only reduces the risk of fire, but in the event of one, will respond quickly and effectively to minimise the damage. Each course is tailored to suit the needs of the company in which it is held and all courses are tutored by suitably trained fire trainers. Each year the correct use of fire extinguishers saves New Zealand businesses millions, preserves lives and prevents injury. Small fires can spread rapidly and trained staff can help to prevent the escalation of minor fires.


FFP Canterbury Ltd use experienced fire training professionals who provide an exciting training experience using the latest equipment and focusing on the teaching of realistic fire management techniques. The delegates will be taught the correct selection and use of fire extinguishers via a practical demonstration where delegates will use extinguishers in real fire situations.  The Live Fire component uses an electronically controlled fire simulating A, B or C class fires and provides a clean, environmentally friendly and extremely safe training platform. For additional safety, the operator holds a "deadman" switch to safely extinguish the fire immediately in an emergency.


Delegates will be able to identify and use the correct extinguisher in real fire situations and avoid risks in the workplace. Certificates of attendance are issued.
