Employee Fire Training – Fire Safety Education
Patriot Fire Protection’s goal is to help your business save lives, prevent injuries, and protect property while meeting occupational health and safety training standards.
Industry experts developed our OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) compliant fire and life safety equipment courses. We’re also certified to cover the entire State of Georgia with comprehensive sales, inspection, and service of fire equipment.
Fire & Emergency Preparedness for Employees
We know the value of being prepared in emergency situations. Many lives can be saved when a company has well-trained personnel, fire equipment is properly maintained, and routes are clearly marked to support rapid escape.
Following completion of employee instruction from Patriot Fire, we present you with a certificate attesting to the safety consciousness of your business.
The following topics are covered during instruction:
Exposing potential hazards and communication
Fire & life safety equipment training
Fire anatomy and extinguishment principles
Safe and orderly evacuation
With visual aids and hands-on practice presented in a safe environment, your personnel will feel confident using your own in-house fire equipment in emergency situations.

OSHA Mandated Emergency Action & Fire Protection Plans
OSHA regulations require employers to be prepared with an emergency action plan. You should carry out at least one fire/evacuation drill per year when all staff is present to perform a risk assessment and test fire safety equipment.
Employees should know what type of evacuation is necessary in an emergency and what their roles will be in carrying out the plan.
When an emergency evacuation task is assigned, an employer must:
Inform the employee of potential exposure to fire hazards.
Review with the employee each area of the fire prevention plan needed for self-protection.
In extreme situations, total and immediate evacuation of all employees is essential.
