Why do fire wardens and fire marshals need more fire training?

There is a requirement for all staff to receive regular fire training. They should be taught the contents of the fire emergency plan. This will include what to do if they discover a fire, what to do if they hear an alarm, details of the fire alarm, details of fire fighting equipment, accounting procedures, the importance of fire doors, how to operate fire alarm call points, fire doors etc.

Fire wardens and fire marshals must also know this essential information but will also need to know more details of the fire evacuation strategy, how fires start and behave in buildings, how persons react to fires in buildings, how to marshal persons to a place of safety, arrangements for disabled persons or other persons with reduced mobility. They may also be required to assist with updating fire emergency plans, fire evacuation plans, simple staff fire training, implementing  and debriefing fire drills etc.

Fire wardens and fire marshals in the same building

We recently undertook a contract to provide a fire risk assessment, fire emergency plan and fire training package for a buildings fire wardens and fire marshals.

Does a building need fire wardens and fire marshals? This building did and here is a brief resume of why this building needed this type of training.

Our client was a London youth centre. The building was used during the daytime by children and disabled service users and by local young people in the evening. The building had a number of permanent staff who acted as either dedicated evacuation buddies or fire wardens. Fire wardens provided a sweep of the building to ensure all persons had left when a fire alarm operated. Evacuation buddies provided assistance to service users and their helpers using evacuation equipment installed in the building.

Fire marshals were persons who bought their service users from outside establishments. Their primary role was to evacuate children, disabled persons and any other personnel in their charge.

We provided  fire warden training London  for the established permanent workers. Fire marshal courses London for the visiting staff. Evacuation chair training for both evacuation buddies and fire marshals.

What do you think? Should staff be warned of fire drills?

Whenever this question is asked at one of fire marshal courses in London, we get a mixed view. Slightly more favour not telling staff as this may help find out what a real evacuation will look like.

We take a different view! Here is why we think all staff should be warned of a fire drill:

  • If all staff know when drills take place and fire alarms are tested – a better response should occur when a fire alarm goes of for a real incident!
  • It provides the opportunity of setting a scenario which may make staff take a different route from the building.
  • It provides for an opportunity for fire marshals and deputy fire marshals to practice the fire evacuation procedure and put in place any learning opportunities.
  • It allows staff to use the drill as a training opportunity.
  • By not telling staff this may lead to complacency and a false sense of security.
  • Fire Brigade fire safety handbooks recommend it!
  • It may prevent panic and any possible injuries!

Not everyone will agree, but we think the case for telling staff about fire drills has been made!!!
