Fire Safety training is a legal requirement, however it is up to the responsible person to ensure that the training is appropriate and adequate. If staff are expected to use firefighting equipment they must be trained. Using a fire extinguisher incorrectly can be dangerous, so understanding how to use one is crucial.
Marsden Fire Safety offers practical fire extinguisher training to equip delegates with the confidence and skills to safely and effectively tackle a small fire with a fire extinguisher or fire blanket.
Over the half day course delegates will learn:
- The theory of combustion.
- Classes of fire and fire extinguishers.
- Uses of fire fighting equipment.
- Practical fire fighting.
The course provides delegates with the practical experience of tackling a fire using a range of portable extinguishers as well as an understanding of the different types of fire extinguishers, their capabilities and limitations. We can adapt the content of the course to suit your needs.
