Fire Safety Training: Fire Awareness and Extinguisher Training for Allied Health
Fire Awareness and Extinguisher Training
Fire is a significant risk to life and property. In an emergency situation fire can cause death or serious injury, and destroy homes and other buildings. Fire safety training is a strongly recommended part of building emergency preparation.
Fires in commercial or industrial workplaces have the potential to cause a lot of damage - and many deaths. Being prepared for an emergency can save lives. A small flame can grow into an out-of-control fire in as little as 30 seconds. In a building fire, fire can spread rapidly through rising gases so hot they ignite other areas of the building.
In a bushfire situation, radiant heat is the main killer and can kill before the bushfire arrives. In non-bushfire situations, smoke is the main killer. Even short exposure can be fatal.
