fire drill


Senior Member
Today, in our factory, there was an exercise for putting out fire. Every one was first theoretically taught how a fire can be extinguished. Then, we used fire extinguishers to put out fire. What do you call this?
Thank you

    Fire drill: getting everyone out of the building.
    Fire safety training: what to do so a fire doesn't start.
    Fire extinguisher training: how to use the device to put out a fire.
    Fire extinguishing training: how to put out a fire using a variety of techniques.

    That's just my take on the subject. And reading your description, I would use the last one.
