Vancouver Fire Protection Agency Offers Hands-On Experience for Using Extinguishers

Vancouver fire protection company offers advice and hands-on practice to promote fire safety

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 20, 2016) - As specialists in protection, suppression, inspection, maintenance, and service, the team members at Community Fire Prevention know that not all fire extinguishers are created equal. For optimal safety, it's necessary to choose a portable extinguisher with the right chemical suppressant and learn how to operate it. For more, go to:

Fires are categorized into different classes: A, B, C, D & K. Class A fires, for example, involve ordinary combustibles such as wood, paper, cloth, trash, and plastics.

In order for a fire to exist, 4 key elements must be present: oxygen, heat, fuel and a chemical reaction. By successfully removing one of those elements, the fire should diminish. Different portable fire extinguishers are made to combat different types of fire. Extinguishing a class K fire, which involves cooking oils and greases such as animal and vegetable fats, relies on a unique chemical agent. Using the wrong kind of extinguisher might not work-or even make the emergency worse!

A variety of extinguishers with different agents are available from Community Fire Protection. Their specialists can recommend the best option for your building or industry.

Once the right portable fire extinguisher is chosen, it's important that all team members understand how to use it. Community Fire Protection offers three different packages for Portable Fire Extinguisher Training with a hands-on component. These include:

1. Standard Hands-On Interactive Training

2. Bullex ITS Live Fire Training System Training

3. Bullex Digital Laser Indoor Training

All sessions include a 30-45 minute interactive session with a certified RFPT. There's also an open forum for questions and comments, with the option for participants to operate an extinguisher at the end of class.

Whether it's fire extinguisher training or buying new fire extinguishers at their store in Port Coquitlam, BC, the highly trained staff on hand are ready to help. Contact Community Fire Prevention at 604-944-9242.
