Covered in this course

The Fire Awareness Training in Education course is broken down into 5 sections.

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.

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.

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).

The structure of the learning materials is very good as the "how are you doing" questions help to consolidate learning from that topic. An important aspect I have learned is to keep fire doors shut and what extinguishers to use on certain fires.
