Practical Fire Safety Training Course - This event has already finished



Imagine the scenario - 15:07 Tuesday afternoon, the office is busy processing end of month invoices when the smell of smoke fills the air and the fire alarm sounds - this is not a drill!

Details :

How will you or your staff react in a real fire? Would you or your staff know what to do? Should you use the fire extinguisher and if you do, do you know which one to use and how to use it?

These all sound like simple questions, but their answers may mean the difference between life and death. The reality is fires do happen. Government fire statistics * for 2004 report that there were 23,200 fires in commercial and public sector buildings with 38 fatalities and 59 injuries.

Don't become another government statistic - this one day course explains the principles of fire safety, fires safety legislation, when and how to use a fire extinguisher appropriately, and an opportunity for some hands on fire extinguisher training.
