In an effort to create the most realistic fire simulation experience, FACTS Training has acquired the world’s leading fire extinguisher training device for students to engage in live training exercises. FACTS instructors use the Portable Extinguisher Trainer to safely control training exercises and ensure proper operation procedures are followed.
The training device is designed to provide a reality-based, propane fueled live fire training prop. With automatic ignition, low and high settings, and a “dead man” switch, students are able to operate a fire extinguisher in a real live fire environment without the safety hazards of an uncontrolled fire.
Studies have shown that when an individual is properly trained on the use of fire extinguishers, they are 2.5 times more effective in extinguishing a fire. Students are taught quick and calculated responses for effective use of a portable fire extinguisher, which in turn builds confidence through hands-on experience. The National Association of Fire Equipment Distributors estimates that only 1% of the population is adequately trained to use a fire extinguisher.
