A business owner and firefighters from Oak Ridge and Clinton will lead a fire safety seminar for businesses in Clinton on Tuesday.
The seminar is titled “Fire Safety and Prevention in Your Workplace and Business.” It will be led by Chip Dooley, owner of Life Safety Inspections in Oak Ridge; Josh Waldo, deputy fire chief for the Oak Ridge Fire Department; and Daniel Adams, firefighter for the Clinton Fire Department.
The seminar is scheduled from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 23, at the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce in Clinton. It’s part of the Chamber’s summer business safety series, and it’s sponsored by Life Safety Inspections.
“The best way to practice fire safety is to make sure one doesn’t break out in the first place,” a press release said. “This means being aware of potential hazards in your business.”
The seminar is meant to raise awareness of the importance of fire prevention and general safety issues. Among the subject areas to be presented are:
- fire prevention,
- fire safety and the business community,
- the role and responsibility of the business community in fire prevention,
- evacuation procedures,
- storage procedures; and
- a practical demonstration on the use and operation of fire extinguishers.
There are a limited number of seats available. Reserve your space for this presentation by Monday, June 22. Call the Chamber at (865) 457-2559 or email them at [email protected] to reserve a seat.
