COURSE DESCRIPTION: In Trinidad and Tobago, there is the culture of unpreparedness. Now is the time to fix this. Fires occur in any place and time. Not only are fires restricted to restaurants and the oil and gas sectors, but all types of organizations are at high risk of fires.

Organizations should not be left unprotected in terms of what they can do to prevent as well as respond to fires. Many times, it is too late when the fire service arrives to extinguish an ongoing fire. It is the critical small steps that each organization can do that can eventually save the day.

A simple strategy to adopt is to train fire wardens in every organization. If an organization is large, it is recommended that persons in various departments be trained. If an organization occupies more than floor in a building, then persons in every floor should be trained. This is a preventative strategy that can save your organization in the long term.

In this 6-hour Fire Warden Training, participants are introduced to the critical aspects in the identification and control of fire risks.
