You can learn how to operate fire extinguishers with our Fire Extinguisher Training program. New Tecumseth Fire Rescue's Prevention branch teaches you how to operate an extinguisher and how to be safe with the equipment. We use a brief presentation, theory instruction and hands-on training in our process.

The training is available to community groups, businesses and organizations. We recommend training for:

  • Bus monitors
  • Nursing home staff
  • Commercial and industrial employees
  • Scouts and guides
  • Day care facilities
