Fire Extinguisher Awareness Training

Fire extinguishers play a vital role in any fire protection plan in any environment. They are a first aid response to fire and can help prevent catastrophic damage to property and even loss of life. Kenya Petroleum Refineries Emergency Response Training School undertook a one-day theory and practical training for 35 members of staff and contractors on site in line with Fire Reduction Rule 2007 of the OSHA Act.

The participants were exposed to hands-on hydrocarbon fire suppression using different types of fire extinguishers.
