Fire wardens are critical members of your fire safety team. They have responsibility for preventing and containing fires, and for evacuating other people from the building in the event of a fire using an effective fire evacuation drill. They need to be well-trained to handle an emergency with calm confidence, keeping people safe from fire. Fire wardens also liaise with the fire and rescue service in the event of a fire.
One of the greatest responsibilities of the fire warden is fire prevention through risk assessment, routine checks and housekeeping. This means that if they see actions that are likely to result in a fire, it is their responsibility to challenge those actions and determine a better approach that minimises or removes the risk.
Who is it for?
Our Fire Warden Training is for members of staff responsible for fire evacuation drills, putting out a fire, liaising with the fire and rescue service in the event of a fire, evaluating others in the event of a fire, routine checks and housekeeping to prevent a fire and influencing others’ fire prevention behaviour.

Our high-quality fire warden course provides your fire warden with the skills, knowledge, and experience they need to help prevent fires and to calmly deal with others in the event of a fire. It covers a wide range of issues relating to fires and fire prevention, including locating and extinguishing fires. One crucial part of this is knowing when it is not safe to undertake this action. Learning how to brief your local fire and rescue service to enable them to carry out their role as effectively as possible is also an important part of training. Fire wardens also have a responsibility to ensure that others know what to do in the event of a fire. Our ‘fire warden train the trainer’ approach aids fire wardens in learning how to train others within the building to better understand their responsibilities.
After taking this fire safety course, your fire wardens will know how to:
- Locate and extinguish a fire
- Evacuate others from the building in the event of a fire, including vulnerable people (as appropriate to your business)
- Call your local fire and rescue service and brief them on their arrival at your premises
- Isolate gas and electricity supplies to prevent greater escalation of the emergency
