Free online training
Firefighters can now easily get the specialized training they need to maximize their firefighting skills through FM Global's new, self-paced online training program, "Fighting Fire in Sprinklered Buildings."
Available at no cost to firefighters, this interactive program trains them on how to create pre-incident plans with owners of sprinklered buildings.
Firefighters will also learn:
- The design, function and limits of sprinkler systems
- Why sprinklered buildings burn
- How to combat fires most effectively with sprinklers in operation
"Even the most experienced firefighter can benefit from this specialized training."Michael Spaziani, Assistant Vice President, FM Global
"In some situations, firefighters can unintentionally make a fire worse at the scene by closing sprinkler valves and turning off electrical power prematurely," says Michael Spaziani, assistant vice president, senior staff engineering specialist at FM Global. "Even the most experienced firefighter can benefit from this specialized training."
Upon completing the program and passing a skills assessment, firefighters will receive a certificate.
