5 Steps to Safety
The 5 Steps to Safety course involves some classroom based training which provides the skills and information needed when evacuating a vehicle fire.
Then there will be a practical element where a person will be observed participating in several evacuations of a passenger carrying vehicle both with and without the presence of smoke simulation. A person may have to be observed or participate in evacuations involving trainees role-playing passengers with disabilities or other factors that may delay or complicate an evacuation.
The objectives of the 5 Steps to Safety course are;
- How to recognise common causes of fire
- How to reduce the risk of vehicle fires starting
- When and how to use a fire extinguisher
- How to safely evacuate a vehicle using the 5 steps to safety
