ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. -- The depot's Fire and Emergency Services Division conducted a pilot course of Fire Extinguisher Training Aug. 6 in the depot's Training Building.The course will instruct employees whose job series requires hot work, such as welding and grinding, how to safely put out small fires.The training, conducted in conjunction with the Safety Office, uses an electrical trainer to teach proper control of a fire extinguisher as well as how far from the fire they should stand."Our goal is to transport the training to the employees, to minimize the impact on production," said Wayne Roberts, a depot fire protection specialist.The electronic trainer is mobile and only requires access to a power outlet for use."For it to be electronic, it is very realistic," said Roberts.Employees within the Directorate of Production and Directorate of Public Works are currently being scheduled for the training.The training takes approximately 30 minutes to an hour.Roberts emphasizes the training is only for those employees who perform hot work. All other employees, in the event of a fire, are asked to use fire extinguishers only to aid in exiting the building.
