Staff expected to undertake the role of fire marshals (often called fire wardens) would require more comprehensive training. Their role may include:

  • helping those on the premises to leave
  • checking the premises to ensure everyone has left
  • using firefighting equipment if safe to do so
  • liaising with the fire and rescue service on arrival
  • shutting down vital or dangerous equipment, and
  • performing a supervisory/managing role in any fire situation

Training for this role may include:

  • detailed knowledge of the fire safety strategy of the premises
  • awareness of human behaviour in fires
  • how to encourage others to use the most appropriate escape route
  • how to search safely and recognise areas that are unsafe to enter
  • the difficulties that some people may have in escaping, particularly if disabled, and any special evacuation arrangements that have been pre-planned
  • additional training in the use of firefighting equipment
  • an understanding of the purpose of any fixed firefighting equipment such as sprinklers or gas flooding systems, and
  • reporting of faults, incidents and near misses

We are able to provide fire marshal training to your staff and, if required, ensure that it is bespoke training for your premises, tailored to your people, your building and your processes.
