These courses are run on-site using an organisations own minibus and classroom. They are half-day sessions lasting about two and a half to three hours, so two can be run back to back on the same day. Cost savings can be achieved if two sessions run on the same day.

The sessions start with some theory items:

· Session aims and expectations

· Basic principles of fire

· Fire extinguishers

· Hazards associated with fire

· Types of vehicle fire

· Reducing risks

· Principles of evacuation – 5 STEPS to follow

This is followed by a number of practical exercises, some of which involve the use of a theatrical smoke machine, which we supply – this generates a non-toxic mist and is of the type used in theatres.

We recommend that any participant who has a bronchial condition (asthma, bronchitis Etc) or who is anxious about taking part should be encouraged to take an active part in the ‘smokeless’ exercises and observe/assist during the other exercises from outside the vehicle.

A number of scenarios are acted out in as realistic a manner as possible, with a de-briefing after each for a maximum learning experience.

Fire on a minibus can have serious consequences and the “5 STEPS” do not come with a guarantee, however training may help staff and volunteers avoid a fire in the first place. If not, it may help them make better decisions if the worst does occur.

At the end of the course participants are given a CTA Certificate and some useful course notes.

Please contact us if you would like to look at the possibilities of running a course.
