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.

Assembly points – Good practice guide


An assembly point can be an essential feature in an organisations fire emergency plan – What are the features a responsible person should consider?

Although most organisations need an assembly point, others may benefit from an “evacuation and disperse” policy. Dispersal policies are typically found where there is a large number of persons in a building and assembly point may cause congestion or a hindrance to fire crews arriving at the scene.

Those that pick assembly points should consider the following issues:

  • Preferably 50 metres form the building but not less than 18 metres because of thee possibility of radiated heat
  • Totally safe – Try to avoid the need to cross roads as this may slow down the evacuation at the exit of the building
  • Weather protection and lighting could be beneficial
  • Consider a secondary assembly point in case the fire becomes a protracted incident

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.
