Fire Warden Training Courses (half day)
There are two distinct aspects for the role of Fire Warden the day-to-day role keeping the building safe and the reactive role during a Fire or Fire Alarm.
For ease on this site we have named the day-to-day role the ‘Fire Warden’ and the Reactive role the ‘Fire Marshall’, but it is important to note that both aspects will be covered in full on this training.
This course will fully equip delegates with the required knowledge to perform the roles of Fire Warden and Marshall and certificates will be issued for your records.
Aspects covered include:

- Who is responsible for fire safety?
