Why is Fire Stopping Training Important?

Despite technological advancements, fires start easily and spread fast. There were 276 fire-related fatalities in the latest year data was available. This figure represents a slight increase over the previous year’s numbers and excludes deaths caused by domestic fires.

Fire safety must be a priority for employers, building owners and anyone else who controls non-domestic premises.

These systems prevent the passage of flames, smoke and heat to prevent fire from spreading and protect evacuation routes.

  • Reduce fire risks
