The Fire Safety in Residential Care Homes course has been designed to highlight the issues related to care homes and the type of people who reside there. Care homes, by their nature, have elderly people with varying degrees of mobility, who could be blind or deaf or may have conditions such as Dementia or Alzheimer's. These types of conditions present many difficulties for employees and can cause panic in the event of an evacuation.

This is where our course can help. We will highlight the standard procedures you should follow, and the specifics of your industry.

We also cover PEEPS and practically demonstrate the various methods of Progressive Horizontal Evacuation as part of the course.
