Business owners can take advantage of free workshops to help their company get to grips with fire safety and legislation.

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Fire Protection team are running free sessions in Cambridge and Peterborough and plan to make the seminars a monthly event.

The workshops take place on the second Tuesday of every month at Parkside Place Community Fire and Rescue Station, in Cambridge, and on the third Tuesday of the month at Dogsthorpe Fire Station, in Peterborough. The next Cambridge-based seminar will take place on Tuesday (February 11), and the next Peterborough one on Tuesday, February 18.

Andy Wright, Fire Protection Officer at CFRS, said: “We want to assist commercial premises in our county to be as fire-safe as possible and we’re hoping these free four-hour sessions will help us achieve that goal. Fire Risk Assessments and legislation can sometimes be complicated so these workshops make it relevant to the trade and premises of local businesses and help break it down.

“The seminars give businesses a better understanding of regulatory responsibilities and guide them on how to conduct a fire risk assessment. We can also organise free workshops to focus on specific sectors of the business community, such as licensing, retail, care homes etc.”
