New Fire Management Safety Course

Aimed at anyone with a responsibility towards management of fire safety in any organisation or business, Active Fire Management has launched a training course for Fire Safety Managers which provides course delegates with a nationally recognised qualification in Fire Safety.  The Level 2 Fire Safety Qualification is awarded upon completion of an examination under Active Fire Management’s awarding body – Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC).

General fire safety in England and Wales is maintained through compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The legislation implements a risk-based approach to fire safety in community, industrial and business premises.  It requires the responsible person (usually the employer, owner or occupier) to carry out a fire safety risk assessment, implement appropriate fire precautionary and protection measures and to maintain a fire management plan.  All members of staff have a role to play in fire safety and the fire safety qualification supports these various roles.

All individuals involved with fire safety must receive all the required information and training to deal with fire safety issues.  Attendance on Active Fire Management’s Level 2 Fire Safety Qualifications on the QCF (Qualifications Credit Framework) will ensure this.  

The provision of this fire safety qualification will assist organisations meet their legal obligations as well as provide a much safer working environment for all of their employees.

The Level 2 course ensures that delegates know that fire safety is the responsibility of everyone in the workplace and will recognise the consequences of a fire in any premises.  
Kerry Lawrence, Director of Active Management said “we are delighted to be able to add this course to our 2012 training portfolio.  This qualification is aimed at anyone involved in the management of fire safety in the workplace which includes managers, supervisors, team leaders, fire marshals/wardens and staff working in any area where this is a potential risk of fire.  So far the course is being delivered to housing association and hotel staff, however it’s relevant to any organisation or business as the qualification is aimed at anyone involved in the management of fire safety in any workplace”.

Fire Safety Training in Gibraltar

Gibraltar’s  businesses  are  about  to  receive  a  welcome  boost  by  a  range  of  services scheduled to be provided by one of the UK’s most successful training and consulting companies, founded by Gibraltarian Donahue Cortes.  

Active  Solutions  Consulting  Group  (ASCG)  located  in  West  Sussex  close  to  London, began life as a training provider for cabin crew and pilots, and since has expanded to include  fire  safety  consulting,  first  aid  and  management  development  training.   The company’s CEO, Donahue, a former airline crew member and manager, left his airline career years ago to pursue ambitions to set up a business that would offer outstanding levels  of  quality  and  customised  customer  service,  yet  maintaining  a  cost  effective approach.  Today  ASCG  is  fast  becoming  a  global  player,  recognised  for  service  and
quality ethics, employee talent and its ability to help people and organisations to develop resources, knowledge and skills.  

Explaining  his  motivation  to  come  to  Gibraltar  to  launch  his  services  here,  Donahue explains “I have been looking for a way to do my bit for Gibraltar. I left Gibraltar when I was in my late teens and have for a long time now been keen to establish a working base here”.


Services will commence later this month (February 2012) with the delivery of monthly Fire Training Courses including Basic Fire Safety and Fire Marshal Training.  The training is open for attendance by delegates from any organisation or business in Gibraltar at very reasonable rates.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the people of Gibraltar to learn new skills from one of the fastest growing training companies in Europe.
