While Countryside’s number one priority is ensuring the safety of its customers, including evacuating from fires, sometimes the quick action of someone with a fire extinguisher can put out a very small fire, for example, a waste paper can. To help its customers prepare for that type of scenario, Countryside offers a class on the use of portable fire extinguishers. The class instructs the student in the proper use and procedures for handling a fire extinguisher through video and hands-on training. There is also a great emphasis placed on fire prevention and education.
Because this class uses live fire extinguishers, a facility that is able to utilize an outside area for the hands-on portion of the class is required.
