Frequently asked questions

What type of fire extinguishers do we use during a practical fire extinguisher exercise?


We use three types of extinguishers on both our open fire extinguisher courses in London and in house fire extinguisher training London practical sessions. Staff will havee the opportunity of practicing with water spray, foam spray and CO2 fire extinguishers.

Do all of our employees require training in how to use a fire extinguisher?


The Government has produced a number of workplace guidance notes to help responsible persons implement their statutory obligations under the Fire Safety Order 2005. All workplace guides clearly state the information that should be taught to all employees and volunteers. This includes the the use and location of fire extinguishers. However, there is no requirement under the FSO for staff to take part in a practical fire extinguisher training exercise.

 

For further fire training requirements, click one of the workplace guide links at the bottom of this page and you will see the list of training issues (Most of these booklets refer to training in Part 7 of each guide. You will also see full details of the training that your workplace fire marshals and fire wardens need).

 

Does Fire Training London supply the fire extinguishers on an in house fire course in London?


Yes. We provide practice fire extinguishers for your in house fire extinguisher courses in London. If you have a suitable outside space, our trainers can also provide live fire training using a fire training rig.If you do not have a suitable space, we may be able to carry out a non fire demo. If we are unable to provide a practical demo, we will still demonstrate the actions to be taken in a classroom setting and then back up the training with a fire extinguisher video.


Our building does not have a suitable space for a live fire extinguisher exercise, but do want some form of practical fire extinguisher course in London. What can your company do for us?


Our teams can provide a non fire demo practical session. We will discuss how to remove the tag and pin correctly, the correct method of testing the extinguishers, the correct method to hold the fire extinguisher, how to direct fire fighting media at a range of fires etc. Attendees can learn how easy it is to get an extinguisher to work and we recommend this type of demo if an organisation cannot have a live fire demo.


Alternatively, we do hold regular open fire extinguisher courses in London and all attendees can tackle a fire using our fire extinguishers if they choose to do so. Your company can also book our venue to carry out a training course specifically for your staff. Call us for full details.


What topics are covered on a public fire extinguisher course in London?


Fire Training London open fire extinguisher courses in London are split into three sessions. The first session is a fire awareness session showing how quickly fires can spread in buildings. This session will assist attendees in understanding how and when it is safe to tackle a fire with an extinguisher if one occurs in their building. The second session includes classes of fire and what the ebst fire extinguisher for each class is. The session includes an overview of all of the key features of each fire extinguisher. In addition, the session includes general information about fire extinguisher maintenance and key safety tips for the use of fire extinguishers. The last session is everyones favourite! This is a practical session and each attendee will have the opportunity of tackling one or two small fires using a fire training rig. We are one of the few fire extinguisher providers that are able to provide a practical session on an open fire extinguisher course.


This course was originally developed for fire service partners. We delivered fire service fire training courses for a leading fire authority. We have now updated this course to ensure it provides a cost effective solution for companies and organisations to training their staff.


How often should staff be trained in the use of fire extinguishers?


This will depend on the findings of your buildings fire risk assessment and the organisational fire emergency plan. If the buiding is high risk or there is a high turnover of staff, then fire extinguisher training should be more frequent. If the building is low risk and has small numbers of staff there may be a case for less frequent fire training.


Many of our clients train staff every 1 or 2 years.

 

Can we train a small number of persons three or four times a year?


Many companies cannot have a single fire training session as this can cause too much disruption. You can send persons on our open fire extinguisher courses in London. These are held every one or two months depending on demand and the time of year.


Although many organisations feel that a one-off course can cause too much disruption, we do offer early riser training and twilight training, so that all staff can be provided with training at the same time.


Remember our open courses do provide a practical session, but we can only do a practical fire extinguisher session in house if you have an appropriate outside space to carry out the training.


Should we consider a non fire extinguisher use policy?


A few organisations have adopted this policy as they wish to minimise any risk to their staff. They probably take the view that the fire service will be able to respond quickly and extinguish any fire. However, fires often spread very quickly and a small fire will become large in a short space of time. This could cause massive business diruption and cause other problems. At Fire Training London, we believe that properly trained staff who are able to recognise small types of fire and the correct type of extinguisher can safely extinguish very small fires as they start without any significant risk.


We train persons to recognise types of fire and extinguishers and also be aware of their own limitations. If a person has practised on a small controlled training fire they will have more confidence in tackling any real blaze should it occur.


 

Do we have to have a practical fire extinguisher session? We do not have a place to carry this out as we are in a high rise building.

 

 

There is no requirement to carry out a practical fire extinguisher session but if you are able to do so it can be very beneficial for staff. Fire Training London does provide open fire extinguisher courses in London and all attendees can take part in a practical fire extinguisher session and put out a small fire.


 

Can Fire Training London provide fire extinguisher training with a practical exercise for all of my staff at your training venue?

 

Yes we can provide fire extinguisher training in London at our training venue. There is an additional fee to high the training facility on top of our training fees. Our training rooms take up to 20 persons (smaller room) or 100 persons (larger rooms). We recommend that no more than 15 - 20 persons take part in a practical fire extinguisher session, so if you have a large number of persons to train, you may wish to break up the day up into smaller sessions.


 

Do all staff attending a fire extinguisher course in London receive a certificate?

 

Yes. All of course attendees will recive a certificate of attendance on our open courses. If you have less than thirty persons on your own in house course they will also each receive a certificate. If you have more than thirty attend your course we will provide an open certificate that covers all of your attending staff.

 

You may elect to have a hard copy of your training certificate or have a PDF version sent to you electronically.
