1) The Nature of Fire
To keep your school safe from fire it’s useful to have a good understanding of fire and fire behaviour – how it starts and how it spreads. This section explains "The Triangle of Fire", "Fire Growth and Development", and "Fire Spread". It particularly looks at the causes and costs of fires in schools.
2) Fire Signage
Signs are used to communicate an important message to prevent disaster in an emergency, and even save lives. This section illustrates the different types of signs used, helping you to understand their meaning and the importance of following their instructions.
3) Fire Hazards
This section looks at the typical sorts of fire hazards you might find in a school and the most likely places fires may start.
4) Discovering a Fire
This section explains what action to take in the event of an emergency. Information includes "Raising the Alarm", "Calling the Fire Service" and "Safe Evacuation". It covers Fire Emergency Plans and explains how risk assessments must consider people who may be at particular risk in a school – including the need for personal emergency evacuation plans (PEEPS).
5) Fire Extinguishers
This section looks at the different types of fires and the different fire extinguishers which are appropriate for each one. Video footage shows how each is used and, there’s a short explanation of how each one works, their range and any drawbacks.
