Fire safety requirements for modern airport terminals nowadays pose a big challenge for airport staff and all personnel employed inside those facilities. All users are responsible for keeping their environment safe. In case of an emergency it is absolutely essential that appropriate counteractions are taken immediately by staff in the terminal.
Course participants will learn about:
- the basics of fire safety,
- day to day safety behaviour,

- handling of emergency escape routes,
- behaviour in case of fire,

- technical fire safety related devices (overview of systems in their environment).
On completion of the course participants will be able to provide the answer to the following questions:
