For Theatres

Fire Awareness for Theatres

Within theatres the actions of your staff if there were to be a fire will be crucial to ensuring the safety of themselves and others in the building, as well as determining how far a fire will spread. Courses can be tailored to your venue and for larger contracts we are also able to develop tailor made tactical decision making exercises using photos and scenarios of your actual 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.
