Thank you for conducting our Fire Safety training, I was very impressed with the content of the course and how it was serious but also fun to learn. I especially enjoyed using the Fire Extinguishers on the Fires! - NHS Nurse
I really wasn't looking forward to my Fire Marshals course as I have always found the subject difficult to understand but Sam made it enjoyable and understandable. I feel much more confident in my role as a Marshal. - Accountant, Hull.
