Workers involved in operation and maintenance of industrial utilities, power plants, pumping plants or other reclamation establishments are exposed to potential fire hazards. According to the National Safety Council, fire is the third leading cause of accidental deaths in the United States, yet most people ignore it. Knowing the basic principles of fire can help lower this number.
This course discusses basic information on fire chemistry, the nature of fire, fire extinguishing methods, types of fire prevention equipment, fire agents and their proper use. The course is entirely based on the guidelines recommended by United States Department of the Interior Bureau of Reclamation titled “Firefighting and Fire Prevention”.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
