Basic firefighting is the next module. The delegate will get good basic firefighting theoretical knowledge content such as fire prevention principles, the different classes of fire, as well as how to practically handle a firefighting extinguisher. This basic fire training will build confidence in attempting to extinguish a fire in the correct circumstances.
Evacuation Planning forms the third and final module of this comprehensive skills program. This course is designed to help delegates understand the importance of emergency preparedness and conducting bi-annual or regular evacuation drills in the workplace. On completion of the course, you will understand the need for regular mock evacuation drills, evacuation floor plans, key personnel responsibilities, how to call for emergency interventions, and how to manage an evacuation under different scenarios
