With modern education having so many constant demands, it can be a challenge to get the attention of academic and support staff to important issues such as fire safety. Yet with over 1000 school fires every year, financial losses running at over £80m, and tens of thousands of children’s education being disrupted by fires within schools and colleges, maintaining fire safety in educational establishments is an ongoing responsibility which cannot be ignored.
Through reference to fire case histories, statutory guidance, data analysis and acknowledged good practice, this theory only course will enable staff to recognise typical fire hazards and risks in the educational environment and their important role in keeping children safe from fire.
We collect feedback at the end of every course and this is what one school had to say:
“I think what came across is the instructors obvious hands on knowledge, they’ve been in fires and have seen the damage, destruction and consequences. Looking back at other fire awareness training we’ve had just now doesn’t seem as valid. You know they are talking from experience and that means an awful lot when talking about such an important subject. It made people think realistically, rather than just another bit of training”
