Fire Marshal - Fire Warden Approved Training Course delivered by an approved trainer

Fire Marshal/Warden Presentation

Here at Firehouse (Scotland) we are able to provide bespoke training courses at the clients premises or our own venues in Scotland if required and can include hands on use of fire extinguishers on live controlled fires using our specifically designed fire training rigs, as well as covering movement through smoke conditions. Training is certificated and is delivered by an experienced approved trainer, at very competitive prices.


For clients not having adequate facilities, staff may be accomodated at one of our regional fire training venues at which free tea & coffee is provided, course class sizes are limited to a maximum of 10 persons.

Half day Fire Warden Courses available at our training centre at Falkirk/Grangemouth on the following dates:

October 2016    Places currently available

November 2016  Places currently available

December 2016  Places currently available


Course Content:

  • Digest of Fire Legislation applicable in Scotland
  • Principles of Fire risk assessement
  • Human behaviour
  • The principles of moving through smoke
  • The fire triangle
  • Selection and practical use of  fire extinguishers
  • Recognising fire hazards
  • Fire safety awareness
  • Evacuation procedures
  • Practical exercise using extinguishers onto a fire rig.

Persons responsible in Scotland should make adequate provision for delivering comprehensive and relevant information and training for staff commesurate to their responsibility within the organisation.


Areas of consideration:


(a) Appropriate procedures to be taken in the event of an emergency

(b) Competent persons to secure evacuation


In the event of a fire within any premises someone must be available to co-ordinate and conduct evacuation procedures and the summoning of the Fire & Rescue Service. It would be unreasonable to expect evacuation to be performed on an ad hoc basis, it is expected that all but the smallest of premises will conduct this activity through a nominated Fire Marshal or Fire Warden who should expect training beyond general awareness training given to all staff, so as to undertake his duties competently. The Fire Marshal or Fire Warden duty is normally undertaken by experienced or supervisory staff who may also have a Health and Safety background although this is not a pre-requisite to the post.

Care Home Sector Specific Guide Revised Feb 2014


 The guidance is issued by Scottish Ministers in terms of section 61(2) of the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005. It supersedes the February 2008 version of the guidance and takes account of the results of a public consultation on the content. There are a substantial number of editorial changes in this revision aimed at improving dutyholders' understanding of the guidance.


Action Plans

As from March 2013 Fire Safety Enforcement Officers in Scotland will likely require/ask for a written action plan based on the significant findings outlined in any fire risk assessement, this will form the platform for subsequent visits by Scottish Fire & Rescue Service Community Safety Officers to check progress on the resolution of significant findings highlighted in previous fire risk assessments.
