Fire Safety Training Program

Having fire extinguishers strategically placed in your establishment is not a complete answer to fire safety. Your organization should have an internal system established to prevent and respond to man made and natural emergencies.

Our Fire Safety program provides participants with the knowledge necessary to prevent fires in the workplace and also focuses on the basic elements of fire prevention and protection. Upon successful completion, a certificate will be issued automatically.
