F1 fire demonstrates importance of fire safety training

Nigel Walton, Chairman at IFEDA said: “Watching the way the team members used the portable fire extinguishers, demonstrated that they knew both how to react to a fire, and how to operate the portable extinguishers to maximum effect. Obviously F1 members are used to working incredibly well as a team, and the way in which they tackled the fire demonstrated this.”

 Walton continued: “For businesses, having the most suitable fire extinguisher for the hazard they are protecting, and ensuring all staff are adequately trained in how to use them can make a big impact in first aid fire fighting, helping to keep a fire undercontrol.”

 IFEDA, the Independent Fire Engineering & Distributors Association, aims to improve standardswithin the fire industry; this includes championing the use of professionallyinstalled and serviced fire extinguishers, in addition to fire safety training.
