SAFETY IS NO ACCIDENT

We will only use a Hot Fire – Clean Burn training simulator that is propane fuelled and requires no handling of solid combustion materials or liquid fuel (we won’t make you dance in burning petrol! or pollute the air with burning wood, cardboard and diesel etc).

The Fire Extinguisher Training course will be tailored to suit your specific requirements and circumstances; ie. residential care, hotel, office, industrial, school, older persons care home, etc.
