What is Fire Marshal?
AÂ fire marshal, in the UK, is often a member of aÂ fireÂ department but may be part of a structure department or a
separate department altogether.Â Fire marshals‘ duties vary but usually includeÂ fireÂ code enforcement and/or investigatingÂ firesÂ for origin and cause. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that you must have a sufficient number of competent people to perform evacuation duties.Â All staff recognize in your emergency plan that have a supervisory role if there is a fire (i.e. heads of department, fire marshals or wardens) should be given details of your fire risk assessment and receive more comprehensive training.
This e learning course gives representative all round knowledge of how to prevent a fire from occurrence, a clear understanding of their responsibilities, duties and role as a Fire Marshal and what to do in the event of a fire.

How many Fire Marshals should we have?
The number of Fire Marshals required will be identified by your Fire Risk Assessment.Â For example,Â high risk sites such as residential care homes will need a greater number of wardens than a low risk office.Â You need to ensure you have enough Fire Marshal to cover you business in the event of a fire.Â If you work in a small office with 1 floor, you may only need 2 but if you are on a large site with several floors / buildings operating 24 hours a day, you will need to ensure you have cover for each floor and building for all shifts, accounting for lunch breaks, sickness and holiday cover.
