Fire Marshal Training

Posted on: Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018



Yesterday I attended a training course with Fire Training Bucks & MK Ltd, to ensure that as one of our nominated Fire Marshals at head office, I am up to speed with all the latest regulation and best practice.

Held at the Safety Centre in Milton Keynes we covered different types of fires, extinguishers, evacuation and the legal requirements we have as an employer and events organiser. Particularly after the recent fire alert at the RPFB annual conference (a false alarm we’re pleased to report) fire safety is a top concern at head office.

It was a group training session and I attended with people from other local organisations and businesses. Our Senior Fundraising Manager Deborah Laing has already completed the training and I now join her in sharing responsibility for fire safety and evacuation at head office.

A huge thank you to our trainer Bob who was very knowledgeable and covered a huge amount!
