Firefighter Escape Courses
Firefighters are constantly preparing themselves to assist others, often in the face of significant (although calculated) risk to themselves. Personal Escape training puts the focus on the most important commodity when combating fire… the firefighter. During these classes, firefighters are taught to consider what they can do to survive should their “worst day”at work arrive.
Since methods, techniques, and technology change rapidly, we recommend refresher training for almost every course we teach. We recommend you repeat Firefighter Escape training courses annually.
