Fire Warden Training

The Fire Warden course has a maximum of 12 participants.

The Fire Warden course is designed to provide the specialised knowledge and training required for a person to be able to carry out the duties of Fire marshal and Fire Warden in the event of an emergency or Fire. It will raise fire awareness concerning the management and behaviour of people in a range of emergency evacuation situations and the necessary actions to be taken before - during and after an incident. It will detail specific duties such as designated areas, who to report to, evacuating people with limited mobility, etc. The onus will be on prevention always being better than the "cure".

A simulated fire demonstration is available as part of this course. If required, we can also provide a live fire demonstration. It is subject to an appropriate area being made available to carry out the demonstration and safe weather conditions (excessive wind and/or rain will result in the demonstration being cancelled). During the live fire demonstration, delegates will be given the opportunity to use an extinguisher to extinguish the fire.

Compliplus will request documents relating to you fire safety procedures for inclusion in the course, i.e. Emergency procedures, evacuation plan, evacuation checklist, etc.
