Fire Warden Training

What is a Fire Warden/Marshall?

A Fire Warden/Marshall is an individual who has been appointed by the 'responsible person' to assist them in preventative and protective measures in the case of a fire. This may or may not be the 'responsible person' themself. 
Fire Wardens ensure safe and timely evacuation of occupants during a fire, leaving no one behind. Although specific fire warden requirements may vary on the premises and nature of the business, they will need fire safety knowledge, physical mobility, communication skills, and crisis management abilities.

Our fire warden training courses offer comprehensive training and education on fire safety, evacuation procedures, equipment usage, emergency communication, and their specific roles and responsibilities during emergencies.
