The future of fire extinguisher training is now

Fire Security Services are the experts in delivering remarkable fire protection training. With over 20 years experience in Fire Extinguisher Training, our trainers are certified fire technicians, many who are volunteer fire fighters in your community.

Fire safety training is a legal requirement of the Fire and Emergency NZ Regulations and must be part of an Emergency Response Plan under the Health & Safety at Work Act. It is vital that your staff are trained in fire safety, this includes the use of fire extinguishers and the role of fire wardens.

Using the latest state-of-the-art virtual reality technology, our fire extinguisher training is a step above the rest. The training takes two hours and is delivered by our trainers, in person, from your own workplace. This course is designed for anyone, from those that have never been trained to use a fire extinguisher, to those that just need a refresher.

Key learning outcomes

  • Understand the basic principles of fire science and the classes of fire.

  • Demonstrate which type of fire extinguisher to use and how to correctly use it.

  • Understand and implement a fire response plan. 

The future of fire safety training is now

Trainees will put their learning to the test with our game-changing virtual reality fire technology. This breakthrough technology is the same that is used by Fire and Emergency New Zealand – so you know your staff are getting the best quality training. 

Why choose VR training?

  • Fight fire without fire - it’s the safest way to learn how to extinguish fire.

  • The training scenarios can be tailored to your workplace environment.

  • No real fire or chemicals means no negative impact on the environment.

  • Mistakes can be made safely, leading to optimal learning outcomes.

  • We use the best VR technology, providing a fully immersive experience, cementing key learnings.

Once training is complete you can rest assured that you have met your legal fire safety training requirements, and all participants will receive a certificate. We recommend that participants take part in a refresher course every two years.

Is fire extinguisher training mandatory?

The owners of buildings that require an Evacuation Scheme must have, and practice, an evacuation training programme so building occupants can escape to safety during a fire emergency. The training programme must include details of how the occupants are trained to use any firefighting equipment in the building. Therefore, it is important that occupants of the building are trained to use a fire extinguisher.

In addition to the above, and under the Health & Safety at Work Act a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) has a primary duty of care to ensure the health and safety of workers while they are at work in the business. Find out more on the Worksafe website.

FSS organised our training at short notice and it was fantastic! The team loved the virtual reality and had fun! It’s a training session that won’t be forgotten!
