Live fire extinguisher training

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

Whether you want an in house course or a space on an open course either email or phone us.

We will send a booking email and ask for information; where the training will be carried out, an invoice address, the names of attendees and also agree our terms and conditions. Once we have the info we need, your course is booked!




Staff fire marshal training – So who needs it?

So who does need fire marshal trainingfire marshal training?

Staff fire marshal training

Staff Fire marshal training will be needed for all persons who help put the fire emergency plan into place. The Fire Safety Order requires a workplace to have a fire evacuation plan and also enough trained persons to put the plan into action when needed!

On every course we are asked “So how often do we need to do this training?”. The frequency of fire marshal training will depend on the level of risk in a place of work, so is not a question that has a generic answer.

Fire marshals in workplaces that are high risk will need more frequent staff  fire marshal training, perhaps every year or so or even more often. This will include places such as residential care homes, schools and buildings with a high life risk. Smaller premises with fewer staff may not be high risk so less frequent training will be ok.

What do fire marshals need to be taught?

There a number of different government workplace fire guides. They offer different advice since different types of workplace have different types of risk!

All fire marshals should know the content of their fire emergency plan. They will need to be aware of all fire evacuation plans. There may be a number plans for various times of the day. For example; there will need to be a plan for regular work times and also one for out of regular hours. A building may even need plans for lone workers and also persons who enter the building late at night such as cleaners.

They will need to be taught how to open doors safely and also how to identify which detector may have operated. This could help persons discover the exact location of a fire. Remember most fires will be small in the early stages so the location may not be obvious.

In summary fire marshal need to know:

  • Details of the fire emergency plan
  • Also the different evacuation plans in the building including arrangements for disabled persons
  • Learn how to open doors safely
  • How to identify which detector has operated so the location of the fire can be established
