Mass. Firefighting Academy offering Nightclub Fire Safety Program

This class offers an overview of nightclub fire safety laws and regulations.

This class is designed to deliver an overview of nightclub fire safety laws and regulations to fire officials and inspectors, building commissioners and inspectors, nightclub owners and operators, Massachusetts ABCC officials, and nightclub crowd managers. The focal point of the training will be to provide a better understanding of what type of conditions to look for when conducting an inspection, a clearer picture of how code violations impact nightclubs and similar regulated venues, and insight on how to reduce or eliminate violations, with the main focus on occupant safety.

Through the use of lecture, case studies, exercises, and a knowledge assessment, the attendees will build upon their basic knowledge of the safety codes to develop a more thorough understanding of the specific risks associated with these special occupancies and the steps necessary to properly conduct inspections. Additional course offerings will be scheduled in the near future.

Notes: This course consists of eight (8) hours of instructor-led classroom training. Program materials will be provided.

Prerequisite: There are no prerequisites to take this course.
