FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING COURSE
Fire safety training for work and home
At this time we do not offer courses to individual participants.
Fire Extinguisher Safety Courses are available as group bookings and must have a minimum of 10 participants, there are no limitations on a maximum number of students. For customers who are not able to host the training, Act Now Corporation offers a rental option. Location is subject to availability and at an additional cost to the customer.
Customers who prefer the training take place at their location must be able to provide adequate classroom and practical skills space as determined by Act Now Corporation. All locations must satisfy basic safety requirements to be determined by Act Now Corporation as well, all live fire training locations must comply with requirements detailed in The City of Calgary fire permit application at the time of booking.
Fire Safety Training is offered in two different courses tailored to different needs and requirements:
1. SIMULATED FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING
With the ability to simulate different types and sizes of fire, this course offers you all the hands-on training without the messy cleanup of chemical or CO2 Extinguishers. The fire extinguisher training can be completed indoors regardless of the weather outside, ensuring you and your staff have proper safety training all year round!
How do we do it? We are a mobile training centre that uses a state-of-the-art training system that allows realistic extinguisher training. The Bullex Bullseye Training System is a hands-on Fire Extinguisher Training Program that is fun and safe to use. This exciting new course covers the necessities of fire safety and provides plenty of hands-on training time.
All of our instructors are experienced firefighters. These instructors are better able to address the questions and concerns of students in the aspect of prevention, procedures, and evacuation
2. LIVE FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING
Train on proper fire extinguisher use with a BullEx Intelligent Training System™ (I.T.S.). Using a controlled, propane-based fire to recreate an incipient stage fire, the I.T.S. is designed to teach the PASS method in the cleanest, safest way possible.
Designed with a unique flame-response technology that detects the trainee’s aiming and sweeping motion, the system automatically varies the flame in response, providing a realistic training experience. Because the training extinguishers use readily available air and water, instead of costly dry chemicals or CO2, multiple trainees can safely train in a single session.
The I.T.S. is a simpler, safer way to provide live fire extinguisher training to everyone. I.T.S. Safely provides employers with OSHA-required fire extinguisher training at the workplace.
*Live Fire Extinguisher Training at a remote location requires a large outdoor space and a City of Calgary Fire Permit ( Permits can be arranged at an additional cost ).
Fire safety training is recommended to all demographics and ages. This course should be taken by people who work in offices, warehouses, construction (trades), students, and the general public.
The Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Act, Regulation and Code (2003) specifies that workers be trained in the safe operation of equipment and that workers are competent in the safe operation of equipment (Regulation 13(1), 15(1)). Training could involve taking a course or attending a seminar offered by a competent person who is aware of the hazards associated with various operations and can offer instruction for avoiding injury.
