Fire Marshal

All employees need a certain level of fire training and information. As a minimum, new starters need a basic induction which covers the alarm system, emergency procedures, and means of escape from the building.

The role of the fire marshal (or fire warden) carries a number of specific responsibilities which can vary from one company to another. Specific fire marshal training tailored to these roles should be given to all fire marshals and this should include practical fire extinguisher training and practice. The fire marshal’s role in an evacuation is vitally important to the safety of all building occupants and this topic must be explored in detail with reference to company emergency procedures.
