Why Do We Need Fire Safety Training?

In 2018/19 there were 36,283 dwelling fires in the UK, according to Home Office statistics. Apparently this is the lowest figure on record according to the Morgan Clark blog. This is still a staggering amount!

Fires can easily be stopped from escalating by acting quick and putting them out while they are small. By putting a selection of employees through fire safety training, they will have the correct knowledge to fully understand which extinguisher to use on what type of fire. This would stop the fire dead in its tracks.
