Fire Extinguisher Training

CPD, Skills for Care & RoSPA Approved

There are five different classes of fire, each identified by a letter; these are A, B, C, D, and F.

Course Description

Fire Extinguishers should only be used when it’s safe to tackle a fire, the rule to follow is one fire one extinguisher – if it looks like it’ll take more than one extinguisher to put out the fire, it’s too big to tackle and the workplace should be evacuated.

This course will educate learners on the different classes of fires, the type of extinguisher you should use for each fire and the technique to use for all of them, including fire blankets.
