This involves educating attendees on the different classes of fires—such as Class A (ordinary combustibles), Class B (flammable liquids), Class C (electrical fires), Class D (combustible metals), and Class K (cooking oils and fats). Understanding these classifications is crucial, as each requires a distinct approach to ensure safe and effective extinguishment.

The training will cover the diverse range of fire extinguishers available, including water-based, foam, powder, CO2, and specialised extinguishers. Participants will learn about the specific capabilities and limitations of each extinguisher type, such as their effectiveness against different fire classes and the recommended applications for various environments. Understanding these distinctions is essential for selecting the right extinguisher in an emergency situation.
