Fire Extinguisher Training

Fires are not as straightforward as people initially think, many of them require specialized protective agents and/or procedures to be put out.
Bulldog Safety’s Fire Extinguisher Training program is designed to help employees understand which type of extinguisher is compatible with a particular category of fire and how to safely use them.
