A fire in the home would have devastating effects on your employee’s personal life and consequently, their place of work. All our fire training covers home fire safety and ways that we can protect the vulnerable and not so able. Above all, we ensure that our fire training reinforces the message of the Fire Service.

All fire trainees are required to extinguish a live fire. For some this can be quite daunting but, using our BULLEX state of the art extinguisher training unit, we ensure your employees not only come away with life skills, but enjoy the experience also.
