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!!!

Are fire marshals and fire warden a legal requirement?


Our new website “fire training in London.co.uk” has a new fire marshal tip of the week page! Each week we will provide responsible persons new points to consider regarding their fire evacuation procedures, fire marshal training and fire emergency plan. Why not save us as a favourite.

This week we look at whether fire marshals and fire wardens are legal requirement. The answer may be a little more technical than you first thought.

For an organisation to have safely and successfully evacuate all persons from their premises, there must be a sufficient number of suitably qualified and trained persons doing the rights things at the right time! This not only includes fire marshal and fire wardens but all members of staff and volunteers that work in the premises..

 The Fire Safety Order 2005 requires a “Responsible Person” for a building or premises, who has duties under Articles 8 – 22 of the Order. This person has a number of fire safety management duties that include:

 Fire precautions for the premises

  • Prevention and procedures for all times of the day
  • Carry out regular fire risk assessments or appoint a competent person to do so on their behalf
  • Maintenance fire fighting equipment
  • Maintain fire alarms, fire emergency lighting and other fire safety features
  • Nominate and train competent persons to assist with the fire evacuation
  • Provide information to staff and relevant persons
  • Produce a fire emergency plan

General staff also have specific responsibilities under the Fire Safety Order 2005. must fulfil their “general duty as an employee” under Article 23 of the Order and in addition have a “duty of care” under the Health and Safety at Work Act.

Fire marshals and fire wardens are employees or volunteers who have been nominated as competent persons for that role under Articles 15 – 18 of the RRO. Their competence has been determined by:

  • The extent of their training (should be relevant to the premises in which they work)
  • Maintenance fire marshal training via instruction and regular fire drills
  • Their experience and knowledge of their workplace and the activities that take place there
  • Other suitable qualities to ensure the implementation of the organisations fire evacuation procedure

Fire marshal training (such as our fire marshal training in London programme) is required on a regular basis. The frequency will be determined by the organisations fire risk assessment  significant findings (as required by Article 9) and the fire emergency plan. Fire marshal training / fire warden training should be carried out; initially, because of any change in circumstances in the premises, because of new or increased risk and periodically in accordance with Article 21 of the RRO.
