Members of staff from Pool Academy attended fire warden training sessions over two days. This FAA accredited course, introduces participants to risk assessments, evacuation procedures and business specific information regarding fire safety. The training was delivered on-site at the academy and participants learnt about fire safety, prevention and how to use fire extinguishers.

We received great feedback from participants, who have now been equipped with the knowledge to carry out their role as a fire warden confidently and effectively. One participant in particular said “I now feel confident and ready if a fire were to occur at the premises. I have learnt how to use different fire extinguishers, how important evacuation procedures are and I have also learnt that something as simple as closing a fire door can be vital. I did not previously know that closing a door can help slow down the spread of fire and buy extra time for firefighters to arrive”.
