COURSE Description:

This interactive discussion class utilizes information from multiple industry sources, Georgia Statutes, and Georgia Administrative Codes to provide updated information on current industry standards and trends.

Through the use of case studies, videos, and manufacturer-provided technical documentation, students will receive instruction on updates to NFPA standards, legislative changes, training availability, information used in the servicing and installation of portable fire extinguishers and pre-engineered systems.

This discussion module will consist of a review of the following information:

  • Key terms related to fire behavior
  • Types of portable fire extinguishers, their operation, and the importance of matching extinguishers to hazards
  • Pre-engineered systems, their operation, and the importance of matching system design to hazards
  • Overview of chemical processes related to fire suppression
  • Fire extinguisher and pre-engineered system design
  • Extinguisher reliability and design safety
  • Health and operational safety considerations
  • UL 300 testing
  • Placarding requirements
  • Review of manufacturer-provided data
