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.
