Day care workers from the Early Learners Station day care facility in Bern Township attended a fire extinguisher training and familiarization session on Tuesday, February 27, 2018. The session was held at the Greenfields Fire Co. Station and was hosted by GFC Fire Chief, Brian Fisher.
During the session the workers were shown an instructional video that detailed the various types of fire extinguishers, the types of fires they are used on, and their proper operation.
After the video, the assembled adjourned to the rear of the station for a hands-on session where the workers were able to use fire extinguishers to suppress a live gasoline fire.
The group left the session with the knowledge and skill necessary to extinguish a small fire, should the need arise.
