This fire awareness training course has been designed to give personnel the necessary information, knowledge and training for them to be competent in basic fire safety. During this theoretical and practical course you will safely experience the heat and flames from our simulator whilst we teach you to put out a real fire using a range of extinguishers.
Ultimately you will gain confidence in operating a range of extinguishers to appropriately
extinguish different classes of fires. The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order requires all
employed personnel to have adequate fire safety training periodically.
