It was an eye opener to see everyone's reaction to the fire alarm! This mirrors the general public's attitude to burglar alarms!
Asking questions about percentages/statistics of particular incidents isn't practical. It is interesting information to include and highlight in the training but knowing that statistic is not relevant to do the job of a fire warden. For instance, questions regarding the exact number/percentage of fires in schools caused by arson doesn't help a fire warden do their job. Asking a practical application which prevents or reduces the impact of arson would be though (e.g. how far away should rubbish/waste disposal be kept away from the main building?). On a driving test you wouldn't be asked the number/percentage of road accidents involving cyclists but you may be asked how much distance to give a cyclist when overtaking or what safety procedures you should carry out before attempting to overtake. The questions should have a practical application for a course of this nature.

Well is very good but could be excellent with some additional practical videos and some life situation.
I have been given instructions on what to do in the building in which I work in the event of an emergency. The completion of this 102-minute course has made absolutely no difference to my ability to carry out this task effectively in any way whatsoever.
Worth the time
