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.

All of these issues are covered in City Fire Training fire marshal courses in London. Our courses can be delivered as in house fire warden training London programmes, on-site fire warden training in London or as open fire marshal training London programmes at our training venue in East London.

Should fire warden training be accredited?

A caller to our office asked whether “fire warden training needed to be accredited”. Our caller had called another provider who said that their course was approved by a trade organisation.

There is no requirement for accredited fire training for any member of staff under the Fire Safety Order 2005. Fire training should however, be given by somebody with sufficient knowledge, training and expertise.

If you need fire warden training in London or fire extinguisher training in London call our teams now for more details.

  • A space about 5 or 6 car parking spaces
  • The area should not be visible from a main road or public highway
  • The space must be away from flammable, combustible sources or air intakes
