Event description

Description

Arrive for 12.30 for Refreshments and Networking, Training starts promptly at 1pm.

Background - The Olive Branch Programme was initially launched in mid 2007 following the tragic fire death of Olive Simcock. One of the lessons learnt following her death was for key agencies to engage in closer partnership working to better communicate and refer vulnerable persons to the appropriate agency or organisation.

Staffordshire Fire & Rescue are committed to reducing the number of accidental dwelling fires which result in injury or death for the most vulnerable members of our communities through partnership working.

We aim to ensure all home visitors involved with caring for the elderly, disabled and vulnerable on a daily basis, are trained to identify hazards and vulnerabilities within the home and to understand and know how to deal with and reduce these risks.

In addition, Olive Branch training will inform & train home visitors to identify when to refer to Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service for a Home Fire Risk Check, thus enabling the Fire Service to engage with our most vulnerable community members, give advice on Fire Safety in the Home and provide any necessary smoke alarms or assisted technology equipment to ensure the occupants are as safe as possible.

Course - The session is primarily based around a case study, PowerPoint presentation & a hazard spotting DVD, where deliverers will encourage audience participation.

This training can be part of your CPD, through a small test to achieve certification.
