S-100 Fire Suppression/S-185 Fire Entrapment Avoidance

S-100 Fire Suppression

The Wildfire Act of BC states that anyone working on an industrial activity in the forest within 1 km of a fire must report it and take preventative action. WorkSafeBC states that anyone taking such action must be certified. The S-100 Fire Suppression course provides that mandated certification with training that includes fire-line safety, fire behaviour, and water delivery using portable pumps and gravity systems.

Note: The S-100 fire suppression designation is valid for five years but S-100 holders are required to take a S-100A refresher course annually to remain certified.

S-185 Fire Entrapment Avoidance

Various scenarios can occur while fighting a fire. Learn how to recognize, in advance, fire conditions that could lead to entrapment. Also identify escape routes and safety zones when engaging in a fire.
