FIRE WARDEN / MARSHAL COURSE
Wardens & Marshals are required for medium or larger premises. This training is aimed at those people who have been asked to carry out specific duties such as area clearance & evacuation, fire equipment checks, tackling the outbreak of fire, hazard spotting & reporting and housekeeping management. The difference between the two can or may be described as follows:- A Fire Warden is a person that has or will be trained in fire safety awareness & the safe use of extinguishers. They may also be expected to carry out other important duties, such as checking fire equipment or safety systems on a regular basis or even in house training for others. The Wardens main duty in the event of a fire or fire alarm, would be to make sure their area has been completely evacuated of all persons to a safe area without putting themselves at risk. A Fire Marshal would be trained on fire safety awareness but would be expected to direct the evacuation of all persons to a safe place in their area also. They may not have the job of checking escape routes, extinguishers, or emergency lighting on a regular basis. If you are not sure what level of training is required for your type of premises, please call us for advice.
