What is the difference?

Fire Warden training in WiganThe Fire Marshal is appointed to identify fire hazards at their workplace. The Fire Marshal reports the hazards to the appropriate person. They do this through conducting consistent assessments of the building. The fire marshal must ensure that everyone leaves the building when the alarm is heard. They must do this as quickly and as orderly as feasible. A responsible person ensures that security measures, such as closing fire-resistant safes, are carried out correctly whilst making sure the area is as safe as possible in the case of an emergency.

A Fire Warden’s role is to make sure that the building is cleared and no one remains inside; this would be executed by carrying out a quick check and then a thorough role call at the fire assembly point. Once this is done it doesn’t end there; he/she must make sure no one enters the building in which the evacuation has occurred until it is declared safe.

In some circumstances, a Fire Marshal is also trained to deal with bomb threat drills for emergencies that happen on premises and what to do if this occurs outside as well.
