CBRF Fire Safety Course

CBRF Fire Safety Course

Every staff member at an assisted living facility plays a role in helping residents remain safe during an emergency. Understanding the nature of fire is an important first step.

 

Many people overestimate how much time they will have to escape a fire. As a result, a person may try to extinguish a fire before evacuating people or re-enter a building once the fire has started. As you will discover, neither action is appropriate. Both can be dangerous.
