The open house will be held from 4 - 6 p.m. with the ribbon-cutting ceremony set for 4:30 p.m. Visitors will be able to tour the facility and meet the staff of the business.

Extinguisher simulator

ABC Fire and Safety Inc. has upgraded its fire extinguishing training to include a Bull Ex-Simulator.

Now training on fire extinguishers can be done virtually anywhere. The simulator senses where the user aims and sweeps the laser training extinguisher and automatically varies the LED driven digital flames in response. The trainees can learn how to effectively use a fire extinguisher without the cost and clean-up associated with using dry-chemical or CO2 extinguishers.

The electronic control system responds to the trainee’s actions and only puts the fire out when the extinguisher is used correctly.

ABC Fire and Safety, at 2407 Riverside Drive, Beloit, has provided service to southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois for 49 years.

The deadline to submit nominations is Dec. 3. The winners will be named during ceremonies set for Feb. 28 at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee. 

Winners will be named in four different categories based on size of the business. There also is the new Workforce Development Grand Award highlighting innovative workforce development best practices. Self-nomination is encouraged.

Nomination forms and other information can be found at the website at or by calling 800-362-7301.
