Fire Extinguisher Training

Practical Fire Extinguisher Training course was designed for people who have attended a theory based training course either on-line or an in-house seminar without any practical knowledge of using a fire extinguisher.

This short course gives delegates the opportunity to use fire extinguishers to put out controlled fires.

Fire Safety in England and Wales is governed by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and in Scotland the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005.

Fire Training

Under U.K legislation the responsible person is required to: include suitable and sufficient instruction and training on the appropriate precautions and actions to be taken by the employee in order to safeguard him/herself and other relevant persons on the premises, be repeated periodically where appropriate. The responsible person must appoint one or more competent persons to assist him in undertaking the preventive and protective measures.

Each employee will require a basic level of fire awareness training. This will vary with the level of risk in the premises.

This course fills the gap for people who have previously attended a theory based fire awareness training session but have not had the opportunity to experience the use of fire extinguishers in a simulated or real fire situation.
