Success at first Wisbech business seminar

Business owners have been swotting up on fire safety at the launch of a series of seminars in Wisbech.

The first business fire safety seminar in Fenland took place yesterday (April 20) at Wisbech Fire Station and invited owners and managers from an array of local firms to learn more about how to comply with fire safety regulations and legislation in the workplace.

Crew Commander Tim Carr, based at the fire station, said: “The crew at Wisbech have been determined to join up with our fire safety team to launch the business seminars in Fenland after hearing about their success elsewhere in Cambridgeshire.

“The aim of these sessions is to help local Fenland businesses improve fire safety. The first event was a great success with a full attendance of nine candidates, all of whom provided excellent feedback, saying it was extremely helpful and beneficial.”

The two-hour sessions start at 9am and aim to give people a brief explanation of the Fire Safety Order and the requirements of a fire risk assessment.

Three further seminars at the town’s fire station are also planned for July 12, September 14 and November 22.
