Fire Extinguisher Training

extinguisher trainingIn an effort to enhance the safety and well-being of our residents, businesses, and customers, Vernon Fire Department (VFD) encourages training in the use of fire extinguishers. Fire is very dangerous and unpredictable; however, increased awareness with proper training will help provide the knowledge required to make the safest decision for evacuation or suppression during a fire incident. 

Fire extinguishers are a vital safety tool. Skill development with proper use may save your business or home from the disastrous effects of a fire. To schedule a fire extinguisher training class for your business, please fill out the Fire Extinguisher Training Application. This form can be submitted online, in-person or by U.S. mail to Vernon Fire Administration. Mailing Address: 4305 Santa Fe Ave., Vernon, CA 90058.

Training includes a short video providing general awareness of fire extinguishers, equipment instructional review, and hands-on fire extinguishment experience. Class sizes must have at least 10 students, and cannot exceed 30 students per session.
