College collaborates to deliver world-class firefighting training in Nigeria

A team from the Fire Service College (FSC), a part of the Capita People Solutions business, has recently completed two weeks of training delivery in Nigeria to Federal Fire Service training personnel. The training has been carried out as part of an exciting collaboration between the FSC and Falck Prime Atlantic, a subsidiary of Prime Atlantic Limited.

Kevin Keeler, Head of International Training Development, FSC said: “We are delighted to be working with Falck Prime Atlantic to deliver a range of firefighting training (High Rise, Fire Team Leader, Fire Risk Assessment and first responder emergency care) to the Federal Fire Service. This will provide the basis for further collaboration in the delivery of high-quality training in Nigeria to both the public and private sector. The FSC has a longstanding relationship with Nigeria and this collaboration is an important new development.”

Folake Soyannwo, Director, Falck Prime Atlantic said: “This is yet another milestone we are very pleased with. Fire-related emergencies have increased all over Nigeria, with devastating consequences resulting in significant loss of lives and property. Supporting the response capabilities of our emergency responders through training and consultancy in-country, in collaboration with the Fire Service College, which brings with it many years of experience in the area of fire fighter development, confirms our commitment to our promise of training locally to global standards.”

This collaboration between the FSC and Falck Prime Atlantic, allows for cost-effective training delivery and knowledge transfer to international standards in a fully residential training centre in Nigeria. Working together, Falck Prime Atlantic and the FSC aim to extend training within Nigeria to the public and private sectors (including oil and gas manufacturing, construction and FMCG industries).
