Did you know that being the responsible person of a business whether it be a care home, shop or factory it is your responsibility to provide staff information, fire safety instruction and fire training. Training is often overlooked and thought of as an inconvenience or something you could provide yourself. Knowing the right thing to do in the event of a fire is critical, it can make the difference between everyone getting out safely and lives being lost.

From understanding the causes of fire and steps to take to prevent fires, having practical hands on training on the use of firefighting equipment, and to knowing your role in an evacuation procedure, there can be no substitute for fully accredited training scheme delivered by trainers who know first-hand the dangers involved in the workplace. See below for what types of fire training courses are available.
