Fire Warden

Under current legislation, it is the legal responsibility of occupiers of a building to prepare and publish Emergency Response Plans. These plans detail the actions to be taken in the case of an emergency, such as a fire, flood or gas leak. Fire Wardens are designated the responsibility of executing the Emergency Response Plan (ERP) in the event of an emergency. Our Fire Warden course provides participants with the knowledge to enable them to carry out their own fire safety drill effectively and safely and to ensure that the ERP is executed in a timely and effective manner.
