What do fire marshal training courses London  include?

Our  fire marshal training courses London are in four parts:

In addition, we look at the common causes of fire in the workplace and also at home. After the terrible events at the Grenfell Tower fire, we will also discuss high rise living and what to do in case of fire. Lastly, we look some case histories and discuss what went wrong at these blazes.

Part two

Part two looks at the different types of fire. We discuss each one and also what is the best extinguisher for them. In addition, we take a thorough look at each type of extinguisher and discuss where they are located for quick use. After some fire safety tips we are then ready for our practical session. So it is off outside, where we tackle some small fires with our extinguishers. The picture above shows our simple fire training rig which persons on the course can use so they can practice safe use of extinguishers.

Next we have a short refreshment and comfort break and also so persons on the course can get too know each other. You can also ask our trainers any questions you didn’t want to ask in front of a large group!

Part three

Part three is about proactive fire safety measures. These are the things that fire marshals can help with to make sure their building stays safe, has fewer fires and protects occupants if there is a fire. This session includes all of the parts of fire emergency plans. These plans form the basis of all staff fire training, so it is an important part of the course. We also look at hazard spotting, so fire marshals will know what to look for in their building.  In addition, we look at safety checks in workplaces and how fire marshals can help. Lastly, we look at fire drills which is essential training for any fire marshal.

Part four

Part four is about reactive fire safety plans. Fire marshals must know their fire evacuation plan so they know what to do when the alarm operates. Therefore, we look at different evacuation methods for various times of the day. We also look at how to account for all persons in a building. Safe door checks are important, so we will show how to open a door in abuilding on fire and help you keep safe. In addition, we discuss disabled fire procedures and why all buildings must have these plans in place. Lastly we look at general fire evacuation advice.

How do we get live fire extinguisher training?

How do we get live fire extinguisher training? This is a regular question answered by our training team.

We provide live fire extinguisher training on open fire marshal training London courses and as in house fire marshal courses. Your staff can tackle real fires using our extinguishers and also our training rig.

Live fire extinguisher training – this what we need

If you want live fire extinguisher training we will need a safe place to carry out the training. Therefore we need; a space about five car parking spaces in size. It will also need to be on flat hard standing and on a space that is owned or controlled by your company. In addition, the space should not be near a main road or public highway. Lastly, it must be away from combustible sources and also air intakes.

If you are still unsure, either call or email us for more advice.

Live fire extinguisher training – more info

All staff attending our fire training sessions will receive an IFSM certificate. Many managers ask how long our certificates last. Since fire safety is risk assessed, this will depend on the level of risk in your building. For example high risk premises such as care homes will need more training than single storey buildings used as small offices!

Your staff will get the opportunity of tackling a range of small fires. They will use water, foam and also CO2 fire extinguishers. Your team will be closely monitored by our staff so that we can insure everyone stays safe.

How to book fire training
