Fire wardens provide a vital element of any organisations fire defence system. Their duties are recognised under the 2005 Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act where Section 11 of the Act states that employers are required to prepare and revise adequate emergency plans and procedures and provide the necessary measures for fire-fighting and the evacuation of the workplace.
Fire wardens are those staff members that would normally know the general layout of premises, the location and operation of fire-fighting /fire detection equipment such as fire extinguishers, hoses and break glass units (where fitted), along with the location of emergency exits. One of the key roles of the fire warden is the safe and swift evacuation of their fellow employees and visitors to their place of business.

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.
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.
Fire Wardens can be any member of staff but ideally they should be spread out evenly across the building covering all specific locations.
Fire Wardens should receive specific certified Fire Warden Training.
Fire Wardens should also be trained in Fire Awareness including extinguisher operation and use.
