Fire SafetyHealthcareOnsite

During an emergency each second is vital. Are stairs part of your emergency escape plan? If so those who may find negotiating them difficult, may require an evacuation chair.

Our evacuation chair training course overlaps elements of manual handling and some fire safety points.  *The venue must have a suitable evacuation chair available for use during the practical element.

To tailor this course to your individual needs, the course has a strong practical element. Candidates will be shown how to set up the chair, and secure it safely. Candidates will then be be instructed on how to manoeuvre it on the flat, before taking turns moving each other downstairs in the chair. Film footage of techniques and discussions of case studies will also be utilised.

This course is taught by emergency service personal so if there is particular content you would like included then please Contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
