National Fire Safety offers training to its’ clients in order for employees and everyone involved to be prepared in case of an emergency. By the end of our training, your company will be up to the OSHA training standards and feel comfortable that if anything should happen, you will be ready for it.
To ensure your fire training is up to par, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), O.S.H.A., your insurance provider, and your local building inspectors require you to educate your employees on proper training in the case of an emergency.
For over a century, fire extinguishers have been a valuable tool for fighting certain small fires. Everyone should know how to use a fire extinguisher, but many don’t. Nor does everyone know that a specific type of extinguisher should be used for each class of fire.
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR):
“Where the employer has provided portable fire extinguishers for employee use in the workplace, the employer shall also provide an educational program to familiarize employees with the general principles of fire extinguisher use and the hazards involved with incipient stage fire-fighting. This training will be provided upon initial employment and at least annually thereafter…”
WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF A FIRE
- Sound the alarm
- Get everyone out
- Call the Fire Department
- Assess whether the hire is appropriate for a portable fire extinguisher
NEVER FIGHT A FIRE IF
- The fire is spreading beyond the spot where it started
- You can’t fight the fire with your back to an escape exit
- The fire can block your only escape
- You don’t have adequate fire-fighting equipment
Cutting Insurance Rates with
Improved Fire Protection Programs
Your insurance policy is the number one driving factor when it comes to making the Life Safety decisions of your business. There is no cut rate insurance plan for life safety, you either meet the codes or not, it is that simple, and your business protection and payment on claims depends on it. It is up to the business owners to ensure that all life safety inspections are completed and ensured compliant by qualified service provider. Insurance companies are not in business to pay claims, but rather focus on keeping businesses safe with claim avoidance and that is where we come in.

All of the mandated inspections and services performed, lessen the risk associated with your business, which in turn, directly reflects in your premium rates.
