A fire warden (or Marshal) has duties to ensure that any workplace or public institution can ensure the safety of anyone in the area, to leave to site as quickly as possible in the event of a fire. The RRFSO (Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005), requires that suitable training is provided to any “competent persons”. Fire Wardens ensure adequate procedures are in place, are communicated and reviewed on a regular basis. Persons taking this course will gain an invaluable understanding about the Fire Wardens Role and their duties, as well as actions to be taken in the event of a fire. This entry level awareness course is aimed at employees who advise and monitor arrangements as part of an organisation’s emergency response plan to fire in the workplace.
