We interviewed several fire safety companies and chose Benfield Fire Safety because they were the most professional and offered interesting, realistic and relevant fire safety training. The use of “faux” fires that staff extinguish coupled with a fire evacuation means that if they ever encountered a fire – they would actually remember their training and be able to apply the safest solution. The feedback received from staff could not be better; they are interested in attending and learn from the sessions. We cannot conduct a mock evacuation of our residents but the staff can be trained on how to do so safely and it has helped them to feel confident in the event of an emergency.
The fire risk assessments and fire evacuation plans for each of our care homes are thorough and easy to follow for all to use, and for us as owners to see where we need to make changes and invest.
