Fire Investigation Team Training

Course Duration: - 3 to 3.5 hours (inc practical session), Maximum of 12 delegates.


The Fire Investigation Team Course is designed to expand on information given during Fire Marshal Training. The course has been designed with larger businesses in mind, or where a two stage alarm system has been adopted. Employee's undertaking a Fire Party Team role are expected to respond to the initial alarm activation and investigate within an allocated time frame. Once reaching the area in which the alarm is activating the Investigation Team will establish whether the alarm is a fire or false alarm.
Upon discovering a fire the team will carry out usual Fire Marshal duties in accordance with company policy.

If the activation is confirmed as a false alarm the system can be reset without any disruption to the company.

For our practical sessions we use gas fire simulators which are clean burning and will not damage the floor surface nor will it cause a smoke problem to either your premises or the surrounding area / neighbouring premises ensuring that the live fire fighting demonstrations are held in a controlled environment. The benefits of practical fire extinguisher training cannot be underestimated as the confidence gained from our instructors will produce finite results, ranging from giving assistance to fire fighting professionals to nipping a small fire in the bud before it spreads or develops.
