Since we follow a base course, your in house fire marshal courses Kent programme will still be approved. Persons on the course will get a training certificate and also online training notes.

So what will your fire marshals learn on this course? Firstly, we look at fire law and the common causes of fire.

Finally, we will discuss their fire emergency roll and include evacuation, accounting for persons and disabled fire procedures. The course includes discussion and sessions about fire drills, safety checks and also hazard spotting.

Will my fire marshals be qualified?

The managers of a workplace must have fire evacuation plans for all times the building is occupied. They are also need a sufficient number of trained persons to implement the plan. Persons working as fire marshals must be competent and be able to perform the role. This means you should select fire marshals carefully, since they will need to give clear instructions in an emergency.

The law also requires fire trainers to have suitable experience, knowledge and expertise to teach fire safety. Our tutors have all worked for the fire service safety partnership and provide many fire training courses in Kent. We can provide excellent references from other clients.

Care home fire training – What are the options?

Care home fire trainingCare home fire training

Proper care home fire training together with fire drills will help keep  persons safe in the event of a fire. It is essential that staff know what to do and also start fire plans immediately.

Fire training for care home staff needs to match the risk and circumstances in their building. In this article we look at the various options for managers when selecting fire training.

General fire marshal training is not suitable for care home staff. Most fire marshal courses promote general evacuation and not delayed and progressive evacuation which is employed in most care homes.

In house care home fire training is possibly one of the best options since this can include your care home plans. Our care home fire training is an approved course and is based on government and fire service advice. It is also includes some British Standards advice. Furthermore, it can include fire drills to support any classroom training. Finally, this course can include live fire extinguisher training too!

Online care home training should be selected carefully. Only pick online training that is based on UK government guidance. Fire training must mirror what happens in the workplace and should not just be a tick box exercise! Remember, the fire service may check the type of fire training and its content.

Site specific online care home fire training is a new and innovative idea. This type of training is web based and allows staff to complete an online course. The online course is based on individual care homes and includes their procedures, risk spotting and also safety checks in the staffs care home. This option sounds expensive but as many staff from that home can use the training course for the same fee and therefore can be one of the cheaper options overall.

How to book our courses

Managers can book our training by either calling us or sending us an email. We will provide you with available dates and options for fire training.
