Fire Extinguisher Training

Fire safety is an important issue for everyone in the UK. Homes and businesses need to develop fire safety plans to ensure that everyone stays safe. Your plan should talk about preventative measures, evacuation procedures and an evacuation map. These plans should also contain a lot of information on how to safely handle and use a fire extinguisher. Fire extinguishers can be difficult to use, so it is very important that you fully understand how to use one and how to tackle a blaze, to keep you, your property and your loved ones safe.

This course provides you with a comprehensive guide to fire extinguisher use and other ways to stay safe in the midst of an emergency. It begins by discussing the fire triangle and the classes of fire you may face. It then goes into detail about the types of extinguishers on the market and how to use each one safely. We also discuss the importance of servicing, maintenance and inspection of extinguishers on a regular basis. The best procedures to use when faced with a blaze are also discussed.
