Fire Extinguisher Training

Fire Extinguisher training classes can be scheduled through the Occupational Health and Fire Safety office at 178 East 11th Street or by calling X7999.

RA Training in September

Each fall the Residential Life Staff goes through a class on fire extinguisher training. The class consists of a one-hour classroom instruction with video and speaker. After the classroom portion is finished the class goes and performs actual hands-on-training. The hands-on-training is held on the east side of the municipal stadium where participants get to extinguish a real fire using an ABC type fire extinguisher. The class emphasizes when to fight and when to take flight, the dos and don'ts of using a fire extinguisher.

Employee Training

Hope College employees are encouraged to take this class. Everyone should know how to use a fire extinguisher. These classes can be scheduled as needed by calling the Occupational Health and Fire Safety office.
