Fire Marshal Training

Fire kills around 750 people every year and injures thousands more. It destroys jobs and property and costs millions of pounds in insurance claims. The key to preventing loss of life and property is to understand the risks involved and control them. After all, if you can prevent a fire, it cannot start.

On the 1st of October 2006, the regulatory reform (fire safety) order came into force. This was drawn up in June 2005 and was the biggest overhaul of fire safety legislation in over 30 years. It affects all workplaces and non-domestic premises in England and Wales.

This order covers general fire precautions and other fire safety duties that are needed to protect relevant persons in the case of fire in and around most premises.

Fire Marshal Training

Our fire marshal training course is suitable for anyone who has responsibility for the coordination of information and the necessary decisions to ensure the safety of people and property during an emergency or an evacuation. In short, that person will be in control in an emergency.

The fire marshal is required to be aware of the fire safety policy and the emergency action procedures in place in the organisation. It is a legal requirement that all those that have the responsibility to act as a fire warden, or may come in contact with the risk of fire in their day to day work, have been provided with fire warden training.

Qualification:

After successfully completing a fire marshal training course; candidates can complete an assessment in fire marshal training and a certificate will awarded. All candidates will be trained and tested by one of our fully trained, expert fire marshal training instructors.

Course Delegates

Fire marshal training should be provided to all employees who have responsibility for the coordination of information and make necessary decisions to ensure the safety of people and property during an emergency or an evacuation of a building area etc.

Also, it should be arranged for staff that have responsibility for making sure people/public are familiar with all escape routes and exits from a search area, including disabled refuges.

These staff members will encourage everyone to leave the building using all the available routes and exits. Additionally, they will check all accessible rooms in designated areas (including restrooms, toilets and disabled refuges) on the way to an exit. During an evacuation, they will close doors behind them and proceed to the Fire assembly point; reporting anyone left in the building, to the assembly point coordinator
