Everyone is aware that fire is a serious matter that government takes seriously too. Their laws mandate that every commercial property owner and employer must have at least one firefighter trained. This also allows for further information dissemination. If you're wondering why fire awareness training is so important, here are some reasons:
1. You will learn many things about fire safety and how it works. You will learn how to identify the source of fire, what can cause it to ignite, and the factors that enable them to thrive. This will enable you to better understand the behavior of fire. Understanding fire is crucial because you have a better chance of preventing it.
2. You can use the knowledge gained from the training as a building administrator/ employer to make your office safer. You will be able to determine what type of signs your office will need, which extinguishers you should buy, and how many fires exits your employees/ tenants should have.
3. You will learn skills to protect yourself from fires. These skills include using a fire extinguisher or a blanket to put out fires, reading/interpreting fire safety signs, and if you are a marshall, leading others to safety or performing CPR if necessary.
4. The fire safety training will not only give your employees/ tenants the knowledge they need, but it will also make them more aware of the dangers involved. This is vital because many people ignore the dangers of fires and don't realize how serious they can be. Knowing how destructive fires can be will make everyone take them seriously enough to be willing and able to do whatever is necessary to stop them from happening.
