S-100

Basic Fire Suppression and Safety

The S-100 Basic Wildfire Suppression and Safety is required by WorkSafe BC for workers whose jobs may expose them to a wildfire. The main purpose is to give workers knowledge of wildfire behaviour, basic wildfire suppression and safe practices. This course is delivered over two days. Day One is classroom (theory) and Day Two is in the field (practical exercise). The course is valid for one year, and then requires an annual re-currency course (S-100A).
