Evacuation Chair Training

Prestige Fire Safety employ several experienced fire fighters and have an in-depth knowledge of fire safety. We have provided many companies and organisations with evacuation chair training courses across the Cambridgeshire area.

 

Why isEvacuation Chair Training important?

Evacuation chair training is often overlooked when it comes to fire safety. It is vital that in the event of a fire, everyone within a building, whether it be an office building, hospital, school, or nursing home, can get out safely and efficiently. This includes people who are mobility impaired. Nobody should be left behind in case of a fire and everyone needs to have a safe and easy way to evacuate.

What are evacuation chairs?

Evacuation chairs are specially designed seats into which mobility-impaired people are secured and transported from a building, usually via stairways during an emergency. Any building housing multiple people and residents at any given time should have access to evacuation chairs as they are an important aspect of fire safety.

What we do

Prestige Fire Safety provide a cost effective, safe, and simple solution to ensure the safe evacuation of mobility impaired persons up or down stairs when lifts cannot be used in the event of an emergency, power failure or during lift maintenance.
We can source a whole range of chairs that can also be used as transfer/ambulance chairs and assist with compliance, and we provide the training that goes with it.

There is a common misconception that it is the responsibility of the emergency services to ensure everyone evacuates a building safely: it is not!

In the UK and many other counties there is a legal requirement for employers, service providers and building owners to ensure the safe evacuation of mobility impaired persons in the event of an emergency.
Anyone permitted into a building must be safely evacuated in the event of an emergency without the dependence of the emergency services.

If you are based in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk or Norfolk and would like us to provide evacuation chair training or you need to buy evacuation chairs for your property, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We also offer Fire Risk Assessments, Fire Alarm Installation, Repair & Servicing, Fire Door Surveys, Fire Compartmentation Surveys, and Fire Awareness Training.
