Fire Extinguisher Training
Fire safety training is now provided online (scroll down to "Fire Safety Training.") Fire safety training is a pre-requisite to hands-on Fire Extinguisher training.
While the online Fire Safety Training can be done at any time, hands-on fire extinguisher training is generally provided between April and October since it is held outside. View a list of scheduled sessions and sign up here. Please complete the online Fire Safety Training before your session.
Training can also be scheduled upon request for any UVM-affiliated group including faculty, staff and students.
To schedule fire extinguisher training email the Fire Marshal.
