Fire Service strike in England and Wales today


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.

Training staff on fire procedures and sending fire wardens on fire marshal courses London or having in house fire marshal training in London may help minimise risk and increase staff safety. For details of our fire training in London call our teams now on 0207 419 5001

 

Can you have too many fire marshals and fire wardens?


During a recent fire warden course in London, an attendee asked whether you can have too many fire marshals or fire wardens.

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.

We also host regular open fire extinguisher courses in London or at clients premises.

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.
