Fire Safety training

All Stewards and TorchBearers should attend a fire safety training session, in addition to the Health and Safety briefing attended by all performers. This should cover:

  • Appropriate clothing, and the need to fire-proof clothing. (Also the limitations of fire retardant).
  • Specific safety precautions around torches and torch balls — both for Nightwatch and the general public.
  • If available, practice with a fire blanket and fire extinguisher.
  • First aid advice regarding burns.
