Fire Extinguisher Training
The Roanoke Fire Department offers free fire extinguisher training to employees of businesses located in Roanoke. We are able to offer this service to the community in-part through the generosity of WalMart, the Northeast Fire Department Association, and another corporate sponsor who has asked to remain anonymous.


Classes can be tailored to meet the needs of the business. Training routinely consists of a classroom presentation followed by a hands-on exercise using extinguishers to fight a fire in a propane fueled fire extinguisher trainer.

For more information or to schedule a class, please contact Roanoke Fire Marshal, Douglas Parks, at 817-491-2301 or via email at
