“Your crew is doing a great job for us and have been real pro’s to work with on our project. Engineering, estimating, scheduling and installation has all been great. Them maintaining their schedule has been very helpful because we have a limited amount of time to shut down our warehouse and it looks like they will be done in that area a day early. ”

Fire Safety & Fire Extinguisher Training
Summit Companies offers fire safety and fire extinguisher training to educate your employees on how to use a fire extinguisher. Our “live fire” demonstrations provide your employees and you with:
- Hands on experience putting out a controlled fire with a fire extinguisher
- Added confidence in an emergency situation
- Potential reduction in loss of property and lives when a fire occurs
Fire Extinguisher Classes
Summit Companies will come to your business with all of the necessary equipment for the demonstration. Our training sessions cover multiple types of fire extinguishers including the most common: the dry chemical extinguisher. An experienced member of our staff will first provide a 10-15 minute classroom type presentation before performing the actual live demonstration.
The live demonstration provides everyone with the experience of feeling the heat from a large, yet controlled, fire. It also allows everyone to have the opportunity to use a fire extinguisher to put out the fire. Upon completion of the training course each individual will receive a certificate of completion.
What is P.A.S.S.?
P.A.S.S. stands for Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep. This is one of the important concepts to remember when using a fire extinguisher. This is like the stop, drop, and roll of fire extinguishers. Just remember to PASS if you ever have to use a fire extinguisher.
Class Size and Pricing
Fire Extinguisher training sessions are priced on a per employee basis. Ideally, class sizes are no larger than 20 employees. Contact us to get a quote for your team.
