Neil Stocker, Director for Public Protection and Deputy Fire Chief, said: “If a fire starts at work, do you and your staff know what to do?

“When emergencies happen, it is vital that you have a plan in place with everyone having received proper training.

“That’s why I would urge all employers in West Sussex to book onto one of these short courses.”

Debbie Kennard, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Safer, Stronger Communities said: “There is no one better qualified to lead this training than West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service.
