Most of us are accustomed to seeing portable fire extinguishers in offices, stores, and schools. Many also keep fire extinguishers for use in homes or automobiles. But how many of us really know enough to use one effectively? Using a fire extinguisher in an emergency situation can be a daunting task without the appropriate training.

To remedy this potential problem, free fire extinguisher training is now available to any homeowners' association, business, church organization, or other community group located in the City of Fairfax. The City of Fairfax Fire Department conducts this outdoor "hands-on" training exercise using a portable, propane-powered fire simulator. Organizations requesting this service must provide the fire extinguishers to be used during the training exercise.

If your group or organization is located in the City of Fairfax and you would like to schedule a free fire extinguisher training program, please call 703.385.7830 (TTY 703.293.7120) or complete the following online form. A representative of the Fire Department will contact you to set up a time and location for your training.
