If people use fire extinguishers in an inappropriate or improper way they could cause themselves or others serious harm and they could even become trapped in the fire. If fire fighting equipment is provided at work, it is important that the people who are expected to use it are trained how to do so. This course has been developed to include live training whereby delegates have the opportunity to extinguish a real fire. This is reliant on the provision of a safe place where the training equipment can be set up. This training is fully customised to include your fire extinguisher types (and procedures as applicable) and as such it is available only as a closed course. All of our fire extinguisher courses are delivered by ex-Fire and Rescue personnel. They are all experts in their field with vast operational experience, which is backed up by training from the Fire Service College and qualifications from the NEBOSH and The Institute of Fire Engineers.

If you are in the process of developing your fire safety procedures and provisions we may be able to help make your workplace a safer one and save you money too.

It is important to provide the right number of fire extinguishers for the workplace. It is even more important that they are of the right type. Using the wrong fire fighting equipment on the wrong occasion could be fatal. Our expert fire safety consultants can identify the most appropriate fire fighting equipment for your workplace and where it would be best to deploy them.

If you would like help with choosing your fire fighting equipment or any other aspect of your fire safety provisions give us a call to discuss your needs with one of our fire safety professionals.

Perhaps you are considering expanding your fire safety provisions to include fire marshals or fire wardens. If this is the case please bear in mind that if you train your wardens or marshals with Lynwood they will receive this extinguisher training as a part of their course.
