- Fire Warden Training
Our Approach And Solution
Benfield Fire Safety were asked to provide Fire Warden Training for seven members of the Maritime & Coastguard Agency team based in Hampshire. They undertake this training every three years and this was the first time they had used Benfield Fire Safety.
Our training covers fire evacuation drills, putting out a fire, liaising with the fire and rescue service in the event of a fire, evaluating others in the event of a fire, routine checks and housekeeping to prevent a fire, and influencing others’ fire prevention behaviour.
The training was delivered by ex-fire service personnel and included practical fire extinguisher training. Find out more about our Fire Warden Training.
Very Engaging Training
“I’ve done fire warden training with other companies and the trainers can come across as quite officious. This is the first time we have used Benfield Fire Safety, so we weren’t sure what to expect, but it was very different.
“Ian didn’t take himself too seriously while delivering the training and this made it very engaging. We paid more attention and took more in. When we went outside to use the extinguishers it was fun at the same time as being informative.
“We would 100% recommend fire warden training with Benfield Fire Safety to other people.”
