Fire Extinguishers!

Hi everyone!

Not all of us have had the chance to use a fire extinguisher in real life, but these devices are important safety equipment.  Using them to put out small fires can save lives!

That being said, arranging training on how to use them properly can be challenging.

So, we thought we would revive a previous post from our team (employee) website that included a training video — click here to check out the video, and please  share with others!

Is there specific training you think would be helpful to have?  Let us know in the comments!
