Fire Warden Information

What is a Fire Warden?

A Fire Warden is person designated with specific fire safety duties. These normally include before, during and after the evacuation process but also include pro active duties such as routine fire checks within the building outside of a fire drill or evacuation.

How many Fire Wardens should there be?

There is no set number in relation to Fire Wardens.

There should be an adequate number available per floor, to sweep that floor quickly and efficiently. In selecting Fire Wardens it would make sense to select personnel who are largely office based and in position throughout the day. Also one would want to factor in additional numbers for contingency purposes to include fire wardens being out of position or absent for example.

Who should normally undertake the Fire Warden role?

Fire Wardens can be any member of staff but ideally they should be spread out evenly across the building covering all specific locations.

What training should a Fire Warden have?

Fire Wardens should receive specific certified Fire Warden Training.

Fire Wardens should also be trained in Fire Awareness including extinguisher operation and use.
