FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING
Portable fire extinguishers are not designed to fight large fires, but they can be useful for small, contained fires at home or work. It is important to know how to operate one properly. Fire Extinguisher Training class is approximately one hour and teaches the proper use of portable fire extinguishers used to contain a fire until the Fire Department arrives. This class can be taught on-site at your place of employment or at our North Station located at 10647 Kenwood Road. Class size is limited to 25 per class.  Please call 513.745.8533 to schedule training.
 
Remember, if you have any doubts on when or how to use a fire extinguisher, DON’T USE IT. Leave your home or building and call 911 immediately.
