Fire Extinguisher


Workplace fires and explosions kill hundreds and injure thousands of workers each year and cause millions of dollars of damage to property.  When used properly, fire extinguishers can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or controlling a fire until additional help arrives.  The Fire & EMS Department offers as part of its customer service program, a fire extinguisher training program to airport tenants and employees.  These classes are conducted free of charge by Fire Code Enforcement Division personnel. If you are interested in scheduling a class, please email Fire Marshal Office providing your contact information, someone from Code Enforcement will contact you to schedule a class.
