Koorsen Fire Extinguisher Training Program for Businesses

Koorsen will be holding Fire Extinguisher Training Programs where attendees will have the opportunity to extinguish a real fire, also known as a live burn.

Online PR News – 16-January-2017 – Indianapolis, IN – Koorsen Fire & Security regularly holds hands-on fire extinguisher training for businesses throughout the region on-site at the businesses as well as at Koorsen’s nationally acclaimed Training Center. The Fire Extinguisher Training Program is not only a valuable way to increase the safety of employees, but is also required according to OSHA.

On January 18th, Koorsen will be holding three Fire Extinguisher Training Programs for a local business and Koorsen’s own employees from their corporate office in Indianapolis. Koorsen understands the importance of fire extinguisher training for employees, which is why they practice what they preach and train their own. The trainings will be held from 8-10am, 10:30am-12:30pm, and 2-4pm at the Koorsen Training Center, 2820 North Webster Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46219.

Koorsen’s Fire Extinguisher Training Program brings a tailored experience to a business’s employees. They start with classroom instruction, and then give the employees hands-on experience using an extinguisher to put out a real fire or a digital fire simulation.

A real fire, also referred to as a live burn, requires a permit from the city, which Koorsen was granted for the January 18th training programs. During those classes, employees will experience putting out a live fire with a fire extinguisher.

Hands-on training gives employees the confidence and knowledge to operate a fire extinguisher in the event of a fire. When a fire happens, there is no time for fumbling, questions or reading a fire extinguisher instruction label. Time is of the essence, which is why the Koorsen Fire Extinguisher Training Program is an invaluable program for businesses.
