Fire Warden plus Course Content

Our 1/2 day course is ideal for the smaller business where running in-house courses is not practicable. This generic course will cover the role of the fire warden and includes practical use of fire extinguishers against a live fire using our gas simulator. Throughout the course, the instructor will work with the attendees and discuss any site specific issues where possible. Candidates will also be guided to where additional fire safety advice can be found

Why do my staff need practical Fire Extinguisher Training?

Practical Fire extinguisher training is not a legal requirement, it’s all about ensuring that, in the event of an emergency, staff are capable and feel confident to identify when it is SAFE to tackle a fire and then tackle the fire in a SAFE manner. The longer it takes for the fire to be extinguished, the bigger the fire potentially becomes and as it takes hold it becomes more unlikely it will be able to be tackled by a portable extinguisher.

Practical Fire extinguisher training as opposed to classroom based theory training gives employees “hands-on” experience with extinguishers against a live fire. This is generated by a safe and controlled gas fuelled training rig which is set up outdoors. We have two systems for training, a trailer system called FIONA (FIre ON A trailer) and we also have a ground dumped system. Both systems can simulate, bin, electrical and spill fires.

Staff will be more confident and know exactly what to do if faced with a small fire, enabling them to tackle the fire without panicking. Practical training provides your business, employees and building the best possible chance of surviving a fire in the workplace.
