Fire Extinguishers are to be used on small fires by competent persons if and when it is safe to do so.

Fire Extinguisher Training Course

In workplaces it’s common knowledge where the fire exits are located and where your fire meet up point is. However, it’s even more important for staff to know how to operate and manage a fire by using extinguishers.

To give you peace of mind, 1st Attendance offer a quick and simple Fire Extinguisher Training course that your staff can take part in. Your staff members or colleagues will be able to identify various fire types and know how to tackle them to prevent a fire becoming out of control. By taking part in our 1 hour course, your team will be confident and capable in using CO2, water and other extinguishing methods.

What does the Fire Extinguisher Training involve?

The course is split into two sections and offers complete teachings in the theory of fire safety and practical training in operating fire extinguishers.

These two sections are:

Will the Fire Extinguisher training course include how to operate an extinguisher?

We want to make sure your colleagues and staff are fully prepared for a fire within your workplace. We therefore offer training and use of Water & Co2 Extinguishers on real fires, as well as demonstration of Foam Extinguishers and Fire Blankets.

The practical part of the training course allows attendees to get hands on experience in reacting and
responding to a fire. Our trained instructors will also demonstrate the correct use of a fire blanket. This
way you can see first-hand how tackling fires should be done safely, without the fear of losing time in the
event of a real fire. We’re leaders in what we do, so we have found that the best learning techniques for
fire safety are both theory and practical sessions. This way you are not overloaded with information.
