Training

For over 40 years, Fireguard has been at the forefront of fire protection training technology. As one of the Mid-Atlantic’s top providers of fire protection systems installation, service, and inspection, we believe that providing our technicians with the highest levels of training is the single biggest way we can deliver value and security to our customers.

From fire alarm systems to fire suppression systems that protect the most sensitive facilities, today’s fire protection systems are more advanced than ever. Keeping up with current trends in technology and procedure requires a commitment. That’s why Fireguard demands the highest levels of training for our technicians, who are certified by the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) and will test and inspect your life safety systems in strict compliance with NFPA standards. Not all of our competitors can make the same claim.

Fireguard University

Our commitment to being the very best in fire protection services is on full display at our state-of-the-art training facility. Fireguard University, or “Fireguard U” as it is more commonly known, is a unique facility which features a wide range of functional, accessible fire sprinkler and associated fire detection equipment, in a classroom setting uniquely and expressly designed for training. We use this facility to keep our own technicians up-to-date on their training, but also to instruct property managers and employees on the use of equipment similar to that in their own facilities.

The sprinkler system models at Fireguard U are actual working systems, with instructional modifications. Cross sections, “exploded” assemblies, and clear plastic viewing sections allow trainees a rare look inside the equipment, exposing normally-invisible internal functions.

Fire Safety Training for Employees

Training in the use of fire extinguishers and fire sprinkler systems can augment your employees’ responsiveness to an actual emergency, thereby minimizing loss of life and property. We can explain the individual components of your fire protection system as well as how to react in the event of an emergency. We can show various types of extinguishers for facilities that require more than one class of extinguisher, as well as how to operate each type. In a live emergency situation, even seconds can make a difference.
