“Darren is a very professional fire safety trainer with in depth knowledge on the subject of fire safety.  His style of training is very easy for the learners to clearly understand and he fully engages with the participants.  We receive regular positive feedback from the SGH staff regarding the training Darren delivers which includes Trust induction, clinical fire refresher, fire warden and ski sheet training sessions.  I would highly recommend Darren as a fire safety trainer.”

St Georges Hospital, Tooting.

Evacuation Chair Training is essential in all buildings where it may be necessary to support an individual or a group of people who require assistance to exit safely in the case of an emergency such as a fire or terrorist threat.  This training ensures that you meet the regulations as set by The Equality Act 2010 that states that it is unlawful to discriminate against any person with regard to any disability.  Therefore a set of emergency exit procedures alongside the appropriate training will ensure that everyone exits a building safely, leaving no one behind.



This course is designed and delivered to provide all learners with the confidence and a complete understanding to successfully assist in the event that an evacuation is necessary.


After an introduction covering legislation, strategies and real-time plans, both theory and practical elements are then covered using your equipment, delivered in your environment giving the learners on site experience in their own setting.  At this point any issues raised can be discussed and resolved, questions can be asked and confidence is gained.  This is followed by training consisting of possible safety concerns, evacuation chair maintenance and limitations, ending with the correct procedures to follow after an evacuation.


This 3 hour course can be added onto any one of our other courses, the most popular addition is as an add on to Fire Marshall training providing a complete evacuation training service.  In the case of larger buildings our courses can be run back to back to include as many attendees as possible over a few days.



Why Use 1st Aid Fire?


Because our trainers are all experienced Fire Fighters and understand the complexities faced during an emergency; using this knowledge they can deliver training based around possible panic situations, giving all attendees on the

course real scenarios, solutions and confidence.  We have trained all the staff at St Georges Hospital in Tooting and Kingston Hospital, we have also trained staff in local residential care homes.
