Participants will obtain the knowledge required to fight incipient fires or fires in the beginning stages.
Main Topics Covered in this Course Include:
Michigan State University and Industrial Safety Consultants, Inc. (ISCI) have developed this Awareness Level training program on incipient fires for emergency first responders. This includes public and provate sector response personnel who may be the first on the scene of a fire.
Michigan State University is offering this training program for a limited time at no cost to participating agencies. If you have questions as to whether your organization qualifies for this free training, contact ISCI at email@example.com.
Participants can print a certificate of completion once they have achieved a score of 70% or greater score on the final quiz. The participant may take the quiz as many times as necessary in order to reach the 70% mark. A representative from your agency will need to certify your participation by signing the certificate. In addition, each participant must complete the training on an individual basis. If you ask someone else to go through the program for you, you will not learn the information that will be necessary to protect your health and safety. This will also render your certificate null and void.
This training program is designed to provide you with the knowledge that is necessary to respond to incipient fires, as defined by the National Fire Protection Association in its Standard on Industrial Fire Brigades. The skills required to fight incipient fires, such as using portable fire extinguishers and low volume hose lines, will be covered in hands on training provided by Michigan State University. For more information on this incipient fire training program, please contact Brain Anderson or Scott Tobey at 517-355-3363.
Industrial Safety Consultants, Inc. (ISCI) in partnership with Emergency Response Solutions at Michigan State University has developed this online training program related to incipient fire fighting. To this end, MSU and ISCI used multiple subject matter experts in the development of the program. Funding for development of this program was made possible by Ford Motor Company.
