Fire Awareness Training (Care) Course Contents
1. Understanding Fire
In order to ensure your hospital, ward or care home is equipped to mitigate the risks posed by fire, it's important to understand how fire spreads. This introductory chapter looks at how fire starts, grows and spreads; it also explains what we mean by the 'Triangle of Fire' and examines the potential costs and causes of fire in Care settings.
2. Common Fire Signs
There are several common signs that are used to communicate the hazards and procedures associated with fire. This section of the training runs through common fire signage and explains their meaning.
3. Hazards Posed by Fire
This chapter looks specifically at areas of high risk within common healthcare environments: here we explore common fire hazards in hospitals and care homes.
4. What to do if you Discover a Fire
Here we examine which procedures should be followed in the event that you discover a fire. This chapter also explains how to conduct appropriate risk assessments, and how this must take into account those who are at particular risk within the Care environment (patients etc.) Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (or, PEEPS) are also covered. The major part of this section looks at the different evacuation strategies which may be appropriate depending on how ill or infirm the people being cared for may be and how much help they may need.

The final section of this course looks at the different types of fire extinguishers, as well as when to use them. Video content helps guide you through this final chapter before the end of course test.
