RA Training in September
Each fall the Residential Life Staff goes through a class on
fire extinguisher training. The class consists of a one-hour
classroom instruction with video and speaker. After the classroom
portion is finished the class goes and performs actual hands-on-training.
The hands-on-training is held on the east side of the municipal
stadium where participants get to extinguish a real fire using
an ABC type fire extinguisher. The class emphasizes when to fight
and when to take flight, the dos and don'ts of using a fire extinguisher.
Hope College employees are encouraged to take this class. Everyone
should know how to use a fire extinguisher. These classes can
be scheduled as needed by calling the Occupational Health and
Fire Safety office.
