Are you looking for Fire Extinguisher Course in Brisbane?

Our Fire Extinguisher Training Courses in Brisbane are very engaging and highly practical.  Fire safety and fire extinguisher training is the set of practices intended to reduce the destruction caused by fire.  Fire safety measures include those that are intended to prevent ignition of an uncontrolled fire, and those that are used to limit the development and effects of a fire after it starts with the use of fire suppression.

Fire safety measures include those that are planned during the construction of a building or implemented in structures that are already standing.

Threats to fire safety are commonly referred to as fire hazards. A fire hazard may include a situation that increases the likelihood of a fire or may impede escape in the event a fire occurs.
