Fire safety in care homes

Fire safety in care homes is vital to protect vulnerable persons, service users and also staff and visitors.

This week our team trained three companies that ran care homes or buildings for vulnerable persons. As regular users of our fire safety in care homes courses and also fire risk assessment clients, each has a good fire safety standard.

Our courses highlight the need for well trained staff who all had the chance of live fire training and also taking part in a fire drill.

Staff in care homes need to know the contents of their fire emergency plan and should also understand some basic fire safety issues. This includes:

  • The dangers posed by overloading extension leads and also the use of block adaptors
  • Why fire doors are so important
  • Understanding different types of fire and also which is the best extinguisher for each type of fire
  • The common causes of fires in care homes
  • Fully understand their role when a fire alarm operates and in addition when to implement evacuation procedures
  • Simple fire prevention measures such as cleaning tumble dryer vents

Our care home fire training courses include fire law, common causes of fire, fire extinguishers, stages of fires, different types of evacuation in care homes, when to implement evacuation and also how to maintain personal safety. As an approved course we can alter the course content to include your specific plans and also site risks.
