Depending on the layout and the complexity of your premises, it may be necessary to have more than one fire marshal (fire warden) to assist with safe evacuation.

Fire wardens should be competent in carrying out all their duties and therefore it is important that they are properly trained.

The main ​fire warden responsibilities depend on the fire risk assessment but generally include;

  • Identification and reporting of fire hazards in the workplace
  • Ensuring emergency escape routes are kept clear and exits are unlocked, free from obstruction and available for use at all times
  • In the event of an emergency, checking all parts of the premises in their designated area or zone are cleared (including toilets and storage areas)
  • Contacting the emergency fire and rescue services and liaising with the fire and rescue services on their arrival
  • Take a roll call in the event of an evacuation (if appropriate)
  • Assist with any subsequent investigations
  • Confirm that the building is safe before anyone is allowed to re-enter
