Handling of portable extinguishers

Have you ever handled a portable extinguisher? To address this situation, we offer a two-part training. First,  the theoretical part will clarify the different types of extinguishers. Then, the practical part will allow the participants to handle different types of extinguishers using a real-life simulator providing an incipient fire. This training can be adapted to your needs.
