Project Fire trains Fire & Rescue Services

“We’re excited to have added this new CPD to our range of presentations, bringing together multiple Fire & Rescue services to a collaborative & now IFE accredited 2 hour CPD. Engagement with this event not only encourages the collective interest and knowledge but also the obligation we have as industry experts to raise sprinkler awareness.”

Project Fire have teamed up with several Fire & Rescue Services across the UK to deliver a series of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) webinars aimed at furthering their knowledge of fire sprinklers. Working with several Fire Safety Inspectors Fire & Rescue Services across the UK, we have tailored our presentations to cover several topics that personnel at the Fire & Rescue Services felt would be beneficial in expanding their knowledge, in particular, what to do when attending a fire sprinkler activation (something we have first-hand experience with).

The CPD training has now been formally validated by the Institute of Fire Engineers and all delegates who attend will receive accreditation. Due to high demand and a very positive response we have had to include additional dates for the program. So far, we are expecting around 50-70 delegates per session from Fire Protection Engineers, Head of Prevention and Protection, Fire Safety Advisors and Inspectors to Firefighters.

These online sessions are presented by Andrew Fisher, Training Officer at Project Fire (who also curates Project Fire’s Sprinkler Talk, a free weekly bite sized webinar) and will provide constructive updates on current legislation, building regulations and British Standards for both commercial and residential properties as well as an overview of sprinkler systems, the different types and application, best practice and sustainability as well as service and maintenance requirements, performing inspections and what to do when attending a sprinkler activation.

“It’s fantastic of Project Fire to share their expertise, and we are now much better prepared when attending sprinkler activation. Really useful CPD, relaxed informative delivery.”

Following a very successful trial with Cleveland Fire Brigade, over the coming weeks we will play host to Hertfordshire, Cumbria, Lancashire, Bedfordshire, Essex County, Cambridge and Norfolk Fire and Rescue Services.

Project Fire have a growing range of CPD presentations covering topics such from the latest fire sprinkler codes to sprinkler vs mist as well as their free weekly bite sized CPD webinars Sprinkler Talk. For more information or to book your free CPD webinar please get in touch.

“As a long-time collaborator with our local fire and rescue service, we see these sessions as another step forward in creating a safer built environment, providing clear and updated information on fire sprinklers as well as generating both awareness and providing cross-sector sprinkler knowledge.”
