The numbers on a course with a practical fire extinguisher session is limited to twenty persons. This is so the trainers can maintain high health and safety standards.
The outside space must be:
There are two options:
Staff can attend open courses which are held in central London each month. Since places are strictly limited, early booking is advised.
Another option is to have an in house course and share with another workplace who wants this service. Workplace places wanting this solution must find there own "sharer".
This will depend on the type of workplace. However, the trainers usually use water, foam and also CO2 extinguishers. They will also use wet chemical extinguishers if there is a commercial kitchen in the building.
This is a common question to our office and also trainers. The answer is quite simple. Everyone must have fire extinguisher training.
Government fire safety guidance details what is in a fire emergency plan. The plans must include fire fighting equipment in the workplace. As all workplaces must have fire extinguishers, then all staff must be trained.
A further question on our fire extinguisher courses London is “How often should staff be trained in the use of fire extinguishers?”. This will depend on the level of risk in the workplace. Workplaces such as care homes have frequent fires and the live risk is high. Therefore persons staff in care homes will have regular and frequent fire training which should include fire extinguishers.
There is no requirement to have live fire extinguisher training. However, there are benefits of opting for a course with live fire extinguisher training. As most persons have not used a fire extinguisher before or have done it very infrequently. Using a fire extinguisher, knowing how to hold it, how to direct the fire media onto the fire, how close to stand and when it is and is not safe to tackle a fire will be very useful when tackling a real fire.
There is not an expiry date on City Fire Training certificates. This is because the the frequency of fire training is based on the findings of the fire risk assessment.
If the workplace is high risk, the frequency of training should be short. For example care homes and also hospitals should consider annual training.
Workplaces with a lower risk such as shop or also a small office may consider training every three years.
Remember, that fire drills must also be undertaken. Each person in a workplace must take part in at least one each year.

Your fire risk assessor should tell you whether you have enough fire extinguishers. As a rough guide, you will require one general purpose fire extinguisher for each 200 sq metres of floor space on each floor. You will need a minimum of two general purpose extinguisher unless you have less than 100 sq metres of floor space.
In addition to general purpose fire extinguishers, you will also need extinguishers to cover other risks in your premises. For example, you will need CO2 fire extinguishers for any electrical risk. You could place one CO2 extinguisher next to each general presuppose extinguisher.
Always be sure that you do over provide fire extinguishers as this can be expensive. It may be cheaper to appoint an independent external fire risk assessor. He/She may be able to save you money over a few years by giving you a minimum number required.

You can access a number of articles about P50 fire extinguishers on the internet. Simply put, these extinguishers have a 10 year warranty and do not require servicing annually. Some fire services sell P50 fire extinguishers, so there cannot be a better endorsement than this. Such fire services must then pass”maintaining fire fighting equipment” criteria in their audit of workplaces.
Fire extinguishers should be disposed of carefully. They can be sent back to the original suppliers. They can also be sent to scrap dealers. Most fire extinguisher training providers do not take old extinguishers and this also includes City Fire Training. However, we can recommend Knightsbridge Fire and Security who offer this service.

Secondly, we have other clients who carry out annual or bi annual training. This also takes up a number of places on the courses. Thirdly, we rank highly in search engines, so often get “passing customers” who want single course places. In addition, this course includes live fire extinguisher training, so attendees can tackle small fires. Lastly, we are very good and always get great feedback for this IFSM approved course.
