Fire marshals are employees who play a key role in keeping people safe if a fire should break out on your business premises. They have fewer responsibilities than Fire Wardens, whose wider remit includes routine fire prevention activities. The fire marshal’s main duties are to identify fire hazards and report them to the appropriate person, take the correct action in the event of a fire, and ensure escape routes are kept clear and can be used effectively at all times.
If a fire is discovered, the fire marshal is expected to carry out a number of actions including checking that the alarm has been raised, ensuring everyone has left the building, liaising with the fire and rescue service and fighting the fire if it is safe to do so.
Who is it for?
Our Fire Marshal Training is for all people who have been allocated this role in your organisation responsible for fire evacuation drills, putting out a fire, liaising with their local fire and rescue service and evacuating others in the event of a fire.
Benefits of using Benfield Fire Safety
Our Fire Marshal Training is delivered by ex-fire service personnel with more than 20 years’ experience of fire safety and tackling fires. The team are qualified by the Institute of Fire Safety Managers and the Institute of Fire Engineers. You can be assured that Benfield Fire Safety has the knowledge and practical experience to provide professional fire safety training.
During our Fire Marshal Training course, participants learn in a classroom setting using pair work and quizzes to build on their existing knowledge of fire safety before gaining practical experience. This involves playing a role in a simulated fire emergency and real-time feedback is given to improve performance. The hands-on training includes extinguishing a real fire outdoors and/or a simulated fire using digital extinguishers.
After taking this fire safety course, your fire marshals will know how to:
- Locate and put-out a fire
- Evacuate others from your premises, including vulnerable people
- Telephone their local fire and rescue service, and update them on their arrival at your premises
- Cut off gas and electricity supplies to prevent greater worsening of the emergency
- Conduct a roll-call of employees, contractors and visitors at your designated fire assembly point
