Fire safety assistant training

If a fire breaks out in a company, every second counts. This is because all employees must be evacuated and, if possible, the sources of the fire must be kept in check until the fire brigade arrives. Companies are obliged to appoint a sufficient number of fire protection assistants to ensure effective fire protection in the event of a fire.We offer fire protection assistant training within one day in compliance with current legislation. Among other things, all relevant legal principles, the most important tasks of a fire protection assistant and the practical extinguishing of a fire with the help of a hand-held fire extinguisher are explained to the participants.

Tasks of a fire safety assistant

Tasks of a fire safety assistant

Fire protection assistants have the task of providing support in the event of a fire and, if possible, securing the situation. This essentially refers to the help and organization of the evacuation of the company and not necessarily to an independent extinguishing of the fire. Furthermore, the fire protection assistant acts as a contact person for the fire brigade and supports the prevention of fires in the company. He supports, for example, the fire protection officer and controls processes that are related to fire hazards.

Who can become a fire safety assistant?

In principle, anyone can be trained as a fire protection assistant, as there are no special requirements for fire protection assistant training. Of course, a certain interest in the subject is advantageous.In addition, prospective fire protection assistants should keep a clear head in dangerous situations in order to be able to evacuate colleagues safely. In most cases, quick and correct action can often extinguish an incipient fire without causing major personal injury or property damage.
