Wren Kitchens further raises its fire safety standards with a duo of exercises to safeguard the community and its manufacturing sites at Barton-upon-Humber, Howden and Scunthorpe.
The first session of training saw over 40 team members being hands-on at an advanced firefighting course, where they learnt techniques on high-pressure foam appliances and fire hoses at the at Humberside Airport HRF Solutions course. The Wren team are now fully-trained to be able to control larger scale fires then previously to do so.
Senior Airport Fire Officer, Rick Phillips, led the training at Humberside Airport. He said: “It was refreshing to see how passionate and enthusiastic the members of the Wren team were during the exercise.
“Their positive mindset is a great example of the company’s ethos in bringing health and safety to the forefront; as one day this training could save someone’s life.”
Not only that, but recently Wren teamed up with Humberside and Lincolnshire fire and rescue services for a vital fire exercise. Over 40 fire personnel and five fire engines flooded Wren’s headquarters, The Nest, to work on a life-like scenario to formulate a detailed action plan in the event of a large-scale fire.
The next exercise will take place on 11th September at The Nest where a section of the warehouse will be filled with smoke to create a simulated fire and rescue situation.
Wren Kitchens Manufacturing & Logistics Director, Raf Klimek, concludes: “We’re continuing to develop and enhance our health and safety techniques at Wren, as it remains our top priority to ensure that our surrounding community and our hardworking teams are safe every single day”.
