The training was very well received and attendees commented that the 2.5 hours had flown by. Everyone was very complimentary about the training saying how useful they found it. Dave managed to include guidance for staff who are also leaders taking Guides to camp or Brownies on sleepovers/indoor holidays and that was much appreciated.
One of the attendees has since used her learning at home. When her washer/drier starting billowing smoke out from the bottom, she instructed her partner to switch the power to the machine off and move it out of its space into the middle of the floor - while she rang 999. The fire brigade responded quickly and the action they had taken was exactly right. In addition, by the time the fire brigade arrived, they were both ready to evacuate if it became necessary with coat and shoes on.
