Event description

Description

Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service will be hosting an event to educate and inform responsible/designated persons on the requirements under the Fire Safety Order when hiring community rooms or planning events.

The aim of the seminar is in response to several enquiries from community groups, scouts, guides, schools,etc. The sessions will provide an opportunity to gather advice and offers responsible/designated persons the opportunity to ask questions specifically relating to their group.

There will also be the opportunity to look at risk assessments and take part in short workshops that will inform and educate how these are best completed. Particular interest will be paid to activities that include persons sleeping in community rooms, church halls and school halls where the original prurpose of the hall is not for sleeping. Extra fire detection and fire evacuation processes should be in place when sleep-overs are taking place and this workshop will advise you on the 'what', 'how', 'why' this is necessary.
