Fire Extinguisher Training

Proper training and use of a fire extinguisher can prepare you to effectively suppress small fires before they escalate to the point of injury and property loss.  For businesses, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to provide fire extinguisher training as soon as possible following initial employment (or after designating employees to use firefighting equipment in an emergency) and once a year after that.  Easthampton Fire Department personnel have worked with numerous homeowners, businesses, and educational institutions to ensure everyone understands how to properly choose the correct extinguisher and use for suppression activities.  Businesses looking for training can call 413-527-4200 and other programs will be offered throughout the year for individual homeowners.
