Learning from Serious and Fatal Fires

Learning from Serious and Fatal Fires

Previously you may have received a copy or link to the Fire Safety Guidance for Professionals and Carers who work with People with Care and Support. Since then WMFS (West Midlands Fire Service) have been working on an E-learn package that enables organisations to complete training to assist in their individual understanding and development.

Evidence from Serious Incident Reviews undertaken in 2018/19 have again revealed that older adults and those with care and support needs are prevalent in serious incidents. WMFS is engaging and collaborating with partners to try and address this.

Working together to keep service users safer, stronger and healthier WMFS hope the event will also help you identify any risks of fire your service user may have and the variety of ways in which referrals can be made.

WMFS would like to invite you to the launch of the package and to understand the referral processes and Serious Incident Reviews. There will also be the opportunity to sign up to receive the link which will enable you and your organisation to have access to the package.

Light refreshment will be available.
