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.

Excellent content and a good progression from the Fire Manager course.
Really enjoyed the course. The trainer eased me into the training as it had been a few years since I did my last training for Fire Risk Assessor and Fire Manager, but after a while it all came back to me.
Great course with expert oversight. …. Really grilled the fire safety provisions required for a variety of situations, with lots of support. Thank you.
