Whats the difference between a fire marshal and a fire warden?


What is the difference between a fire marshal and a fire warden? This is a common question to our office! There is no difference – apart from the name! The Fire Safety Order 2005 places duties on a responsible person. These include:

  • make adequate provision for general fire precautions and maintain them appropriately.
  • Produce an Emergency Fire Plan
  • Nominate persons to assist with the evacuation and emergency plan and train them accordingly

In layman’s terms this means that there should a fire evacuation plan, a number of fire marshals or fire wardens and that the fire marshals and fire wardens must be adequately trained.

Out of hour procedures – fire marshal training London article


City Fire Training recently carried out a series of fire safety services in London for an LLP based in the City.

Following the retirement of a member of staff, two persons were allocated the role of Chief Fire Marshal and Deputy Chief Fire Marshal. They had no previous experience and asked our company to provide fire marshal training for their London  staff, a fire risk assessment and a fire emergency plan that required updating.

During both the fire training and fire risk assessment process, it was clear that there were no procedures for those that worked early or late in the offices. This was our solution.

A baton system was to be used as an out of hours procedure. The baton located in the centre of each floor would identify what areas had been searched in the event of an incident out of hours. All staff who regularly started work before normal operating hours and those that often stayed late are to be given additional fire training by in-house staff detailing the baton system. We also recommended that the person discovering the fire should call the fire service or nominate another person to do so if they are involved in tackling the fire with a fire extinguisher.
