For Theatres

Fire Marshal for Theatres

Courses can be tailored to your venue and for larger contracts we are also able to develop tailor made tactical decision making exercises for Marshals using photos and scenarios of your specific venues. Practical fire-fighting (using live fire simulators and various extinguishers) can be included in this course if the venue is suitable and there are adequate parking arrangements.

All employers have a legal duty under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order to ensure staff receive training, and this course will ensure you meet that duty.
