What do fire marshal training courses London  include?

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!

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.

Lastly, we look at fire drills which is essential training for any fire marshal.

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.
