Fire Awareness Training (Education) Course Contents

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".
