Fire Safety Training Vancouver

Do your building occupants, employees and site managers know how to:

  • Operate a fire extinguisher?
  • Evacuate a building?
  • Organize a fire or earthquake drill?
  • Control fire hazards?

Under the B.C. Fire Code and local municipal bylaws, you must have a fire safety plan in place for your building to receive an occupancy permit. But for any plan to be effective, you must be able to implement its emergency procedures.

That means thorough fire safety training. In fact, the B.C. Fire Code and municipal bylaws require all supervisory staff to receive training before they are granted any responsibility for fire safety.

Our experienced fire safety trainers are off-duty firefighters or fire inspectors with a knack for communicating. They conduct the seminars in your workplace and customize the training for your building or situation. 

Seminar topics include

At Vancouver Fire, we’re proud to be the largest and most established fire safety plan company in B.C. Our safety trainers--like our entire fire protection team—are skilled, thorough and professional.

Fire Extinguisher Operation Training

Our fire extinguisher operation seminars combine theory and hands-on training. You will learn how to identify the different types of fires, what fuels them, how to select the right extinguisher, and how to use an extinguisher properly.

Note that we do not do live fires for this training.

Building Evacuation Training

Every minute is crucial during an emergency evacuation. When you know what to do and where to go, an evacuation goes swifter and smoother.

This safety training seminar teaches emergency preparedness and how to evacuate a building safely. Become familiar with your building’s safety features, and how you can use them to save lives. The seminar will also discuss the duties and responsibilities of a building or company’s fire safety director and floor wardens.

Fire Drills

Did you know that the B.C. Fire Code and Vancouver fire bylaws require documented fire drills to be held annually for low-rise buildings and every two months for high-rise buildings?

Did you know that most fire departments do not conduct fire drills?

A fire drill is a rehearsed evacuation. Our trainer will conduct an actual fire drill and provide you with an immediate on-site critique followed by a written report by mail. Note that our trainer will NOT provide training on how to evacuate the building as this is only a critique/evaluation. If training is required, see Building Evacuation.

We will also conduct an actual fire drill and provide you with an immediate on-site critique followed by a written report by mail.
