Fire Awareness Training

Designed to give staff the necessary information, knowledge and training to be fully competent in basic fire safety, our Fire Awareness training course is run by instructors who possess a minimum of ten years operational experience in one of the UK fire services.

Q. Who should attend our Fire Awareness training course?
