Fire Safety Training at REIDsteel

April 30th, 2014|Categories: REIDsteel Staff|Tags: |

Established in 1992, Abbey Fire Extinguishers Ltd are a family run business who specialise in all fire extinguisher and safety services across Dorset and Hampshire. John Fosbery a retired Dorset Fireman and owner of Fire Safety Company, Abbey Fire came to visit us to train our new Fire Warden recruits.

John regaled us with his tales of being a Fireman for much of his working life and was an informative and lively demonstrator of the many types of fire extinguishers needed on an expansive site like REIDsteel’s.

Across the office and workshops, the training gave five REIDsteel employees new Fire Warden status and 22 more people can now efficiently operate various fire extinguishers.

Danny Bradshaw from our stores department and now an official REIDsteel Fire Warden said that the course made him think about fire safety in a more focused way and that “sometimes it’s not obvious until you’re told”.
