Units covered

  • Unit 1 – Fire Safety Introduction: In this first unit we will look at the risks posed by fire and the responsibilities of people regarding fire safety. This unit will cover how fires start and the necessary component for a fire to take hold. Risks posed by smoke will also be covered in these sections. We will then move on to explain the duties of the Responsible Person and Fire Wardens.
  • Unit 2 – Fire behaviour: This unit will cover the different types of fire behaviour, as well as how people react when they see flames. We will explore a number of different ways that fire can start and spread as well as how people react when they are encountered with fire. The unit will then cover different evacuation procedures which can be in place.
  • Unit 3 – Prevention and protection: We will now move on to look at how fires can be prevented and ways to protect life if a fire does start. Many lives can be saved by simply putting in place prevention methods. This unit will explain the most common fire prevention methods used as well as fire protection such as alarms, fire doors and emergency lighting.
  • Unit 4 – Fire extinguishers: In this final unit we will look at different types of fire extinguishers and when these are used. Understanding the differences between various fire extinguishers is very important to be able to tackle a blaze. This unit will cover the various types of extinguisher and explain what fires they can be used on.
