Fire Service Training. Portable Fire Extinguishers. (Revised).
North Carolina State Dept. of Community Colleges, Raleigh.
One of a set of fourteen instructional outlines for use in a course to train novice firemen, this guide covers the topic of portable fire extinguishers. Designed to be used with the Robert J. Brady Transparencies and/or the film "Portable Fire Extinguishers" and with the International Fire Service Training Association Manual No. 101, "Forcible Entry, Rope and Portable Extinguisher Practices" (see note), it refers to appropriate page or transparency numbers as guides. Specific directions are given to the instructor for demonstrating techniques and testing student proficiency, and two phases of instruction are recognized: (1) lecturing on the requirements for fire, types of fires, types of extinguishers, and their operation; and (2) demonstrating and having students use various types of extinguishers. Also, two handouts for students developed by the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges Fire Service Training are included. (An outline of the whole course covering all fourteen topics briefly is provided in the first volume of the set--CE 016 662.) (ELG)
