Fire Safety

Fire is a potential hazard in any environment. However, the consequences of a fire in a hospital can be especially serious because of the difficulties and dangers associated with emergency evacuation of patients, some of whom will be highly dependent. Because of the dangers, there is an imperative need for all staff, to understand what is required of them in a fire emergency and to co-operate effectively with each other in order to ensure the safety of everyone. To assist in the Trusts’ commitment to providing and maintaining a safe patient and working environment, information on the types of fire safety training, along with dates, times and venues is now available to view.
