Fire Safety for Wardens/Marshals

The course is designed specifically for persons undertaking the role of fire wardens/marshal either on construction sites or office environment. If would be beneficial to have a basic understanding of fire safety before attending the course but the course will still cover fire related legislation, combustion processes, fire triangle, an understanding of types and use of fire extinguishers, fire spread through buildings and the role and responsibilities of the fire warden/marshal. 

It is useful if the company sends their particular emergency evacuation procedures prior to the course so the trainer can include these and customise the course if required.
