First Response Training offers several Fire Safety courses at different levels, from introductory awareness courses to training designed for workplace managers. We believe Fire Safety training is crucial in keeping our environments safe. Thanks to the fire service and national regulations, rates of injury and death are very low in the UK. However, rates of death increased by 18% between 2020 and 2021 (gov.uk), so it is essential that Brits continue to refresh their Fire Safety education.

We have over 100 trainers available to teach our Fire Safety courses. Our staff are carefully selected based on their qualifications and professional experience. After you book your course, your own account manager will organise training and choose the right trainer to suit your unique needs.

Delivery Methods

In-person classroom training is available in a huge range of locations throughout the UK, with trainers available to travel to you. If necessary, courses can be delivered online via video calls as webinars. These include the same course material to ensure learners receive consistent information. Distance learning workbooks are available in Health, Safety and Fire for Health and Social Care workers. We offer online eLearning training in Fire Safety too, which the learner can complete on their own, anywhere, and in their own time.
