This class is intended for plant operations, maintenance, environmental health and safety, risk management, and asset managers who are responsible for fire protection systems or mitigation of the property risk hazards at their facilities.

This two-and-a-half-day training course provides AEGIS member company staff with both classroom and hands-on instruction on the various types of fire protection systems associated with electric generating stations or similar types of facilities.  In addition to traditional classroom instruction and practical exercises, attendees are encouraged to participate in the hands-on training sessions to gain familiarity with the fire protection equipment that is typically used in the power generation industry. Casual dress is suggested based on the hands-on nature of the training sessions.

The following sessions are included:

  • Electric generating assets – fire hazard review
  • Flammable/combustible liquids hazards
  • Water supplies
  • Fire pumps/controllers
  • Water based fire extinguishing systems
  • Detection & actuation systems
  • Fire alarm systems
