The Fire Wardens course can be further enhanced by the inclusion of live fire extinguisher training.
Extinguisher practice is carried out using a propane fired simulator which provides realistic and safe simulation of fires. The simulator requires an area the size of three car parking spaces plus a parking space for a van, and should be away from combustibles, in the open air and on ground level.
All delegates are able to practice using water and carbon dioxide extinguishers and be able to assess when a fire can be tackled and when to leave it to the fire service. This can reduce the likelihood of any incident developing into a major fire.
Extinguishers are provided for delegates to use.
