How do I get fire extinguisher training?

At least two weeks prior to desired date of training class:

  1. Contact Facilities Services (510-642-1032) to make arrangements for site set-up.
  2. Contact Fire Prevention Division at fireprevention@berkeley.edu or (510) 642-3073 to schedule, and advise where you would like training to occur (to determine any safety considerations).
  3. Day prior to event: Confirm training location and time with the Deputy Fire Marshal conducting the training and ensure that Facilities Services (formerly PP-CS) is confirmed to set-up designated training site.

Minimum class size is 10, staff and faculty (exceptions may be granted).  Classes last approximately one hour; scheduled between 9am - 3pm.
