Fire warden training in London and Essex – Unrivalled fire training and fire risk assessments
Tag Archives: fire marshal course London
Fire marshal course London – available at customers own premises or at our venues. Also available monthly via the Fire Service Safety Partnership. Provides government guidance based training for fire marshal and fire wardens in London.
City Fire Training (Fire Training London) have set new fire marshal training London dates. The next fire marshal course in London will be held on 28th January 2014 and places are limited to 20 persons per course.
Attendees will each receive a certificate of attendance after completing the course and will have the opportunity of tackling a small fire using portable fire extinguishers.
A four hour fire service strike will take place at midday today. The strike is about proposed changes to the fire fighters pension scheme that could see all frontline personnel working until they are 60 years old.
The row centres on issues of competency – this when a frontline fire fighter could fail his medical check and be dismissed and not paid his/her pension until they are 65 years old, despite paying in 12% (and rising to 16%) of their wages in pension contributions.
The Fire Brigades Union believe fire fighters (men and women of 60 years of age) could be placed in danger, as well as members of the public. Some news pundits believe the series of strikes could continue until the next general election.
City Fire Training Ltd believe that businesses and organisations could now be at greater risk if they have a fire during one of these strikes. Although fire authorities have a duty to provide fire cover during strike action, it will be well below normal standards of cover.
This reminded our company of some fire marshal training in London we carried out for a large company in the City. At this fire marshal course our host stated that she had put in place:
Fire marshals (for office hours)
Deputy fire marshals (in case of absence of regular fire marshals)
Assistant deputy fire marshals (When the fire marshal was holiday or sick and the deputy fire marshal was not in the area when the fire alarm sounded)
Fire marshals (for outside normal hours)
Deputy marshals (in case of absence of an out of hours fire marshal)
Was this a bit excessive? The Fire Safety Order 2005 requires a building manager (responsible person) to have an evacuation procedure in the event of a fire in the building and sufficient suitable qualified staff to implement the fire evacuation procedure. It also requires an organisation to consider those at additional risk – ie Persons working early or late, persons working on their own, those with disabilities etc.
The course will be held at Toynbee Hall, Commercial Road, Aldgate East, London on 30th Sept 2013.
The course will be attended by delegates from a variety of different workplaces. Attendees will be able to tackle a small fire during the fire extinguisher practical session. The fire marshal training London is based on government guidance booklets, fire service guidance notes and best practice and British Standard recommendations.
For those not requiring fire warden training London, can attend the morning session for fire extinguisher training. To book on the fire marshal course or fire extinguisher course London call 0207 419 5001
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.
