The safety of our citizens is our number one priority. This is why every assembly occupancy in Springfield is required to comply with the 2012 International Fire Code, adopted by the City of Springfield. These codes were adopted to prevent overcrowding and other safety hazards in bars, nightclubs and other establishments where many citizens gather.
The Prevention Division of the Springfield Fire Department is proud to offer customized onsite training for your establishment. Or, if you choose, online training is also available. Employees of all assembly occupancies are required to attend training at hiring and at least every year thereafter. This training, provided by the Springfield Fire Department, fulfills that requirement. For customized on-site training, contact us. Otherwise, view our online training, followed by a short quiz to be completed by all employees. Once you have passed the test with a score of at least 70%, a certificate will be mailed to your establishment.
