Training for Partner Organisations 2022 to 2023

Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service offers Home Fire Safety Training to partner organisations. We are currently offering two options.

Home Fire Safety Assessment (HFSA) Training

Option one is a 90-minute online option delivered on Microsoft Teams to equip partners to identify people at increased risk of fire, amongst their service users, and refer them for a Home Fire Safety Assessment (HFSA). HFSAs are home visits to assess and reduce the risk of fire in the home.

Home Fire Safety Assessment (HFSA) Training Plus

Option two is a half-day session delivered at our Safety Centre in Bury. It provides the same learning as option one but also provides learners with an immersive input on fire safety in the home, including the five main causes of fire, bedtime routines and escape planning. This is delivered in a mock home environment at the Safety Centre.
