Fire Service College Seminar 2018
TagEvac® held their second dedicated Emergency Evacuation Seminar at the world-renowned Fire Service College in Gloucestershire. The event brought together professionals from a range of organisations to learn and develop best practice for managing their evacuation needs. A number of exhibitors supported the event and contributed to the success of the day.
The opening address was given by Steve Skarratt, Training Manager for the Fire Service College and provided an insight into the College and its development. A number of speakers gave interesting and thought-provoking insights into various aspects of evacuation including Roger Gentle, ex-Fire Safety Manager for Gatwick Airport who gave a memorable presentation on managing evacuation in a complex dynamic environment.
To maximise the experience some took advantage of experiencing a fire cladding test at the FPA test centre or the option of a guided tour of the Fire College Incident Grounds. Both were held on the afternoon before the seminar and some 60 delegates and exhibitors enjoyed a relaxed evening for networking and socialising.
We received a number of positive reviews from delegates, including David Gregory of Kedleston Schools who wrote:
‘The day was a very interesting and valuable experience. I have learnt a lot.’
