What is a Fire Marshal


Every property owner in the United Kingdom has a legal duty to ensure that their property complies with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005’s fire safety regulations. This law describes the precautions that should be taken to ensure a building’s occupants are kept safe in the event of a fire.


Certain efforts should be taken to completely adhere to fire regulations, such as conducting a fire risk assessment, adopting fire safety protocols, and providing training on how building occupants should behave in the event of a fire.


A fire marshal is a person who is in charge of the fire safety, prevention, and evacuation procedures in a company.


All fire marshals must complete special fire marshal training. They receive fire marshal certification after finishing their training, proving that they are competent to fulfil their fire safety duties.

The fire marshal’s primary responsibility is to prevent fires in the workplace. They should lead their co-workers to safety and ensure that the evacuation plan is implemented and the buildings are evacuated calmly, quickly, and efficiently.

How Many Fire Marshals Do You Need


The number of fire marshals necessary per location is determined by a variety of factors, including:


  • The size of the premises
  • Who will be on the premises
  • The number of persons Working on the premises at any given time
  • Accessibility
  • The number of floors in the building

A fire risk assessment will need to be carried out by a specialist to determine the correct number of fire marshals needed. The risk assessment report will provide details on what fire risks the building has and how to solve them. The report will also include how many fire marshalls are needed to handle the risk.


Duties of a Fire Marshal


Our fire marshal training course will give you with the knowledge and skills to perform daily duties at the same time as always being aware of what to do in an emergency. Some of the duties you will learn include:

Duties in the Event of a Fire

  • Begin the process of evacuation
  • Ascertain that everyone has exited the building
  • Wherever assistance is required, provide it
  • Make your way to the assembly point
  • Check to see if everyone is there
  • Collect information
  • Report to the person in command of the fire department

Daily Duties

  • Examine fire exits
  • Examine fire extinguishers
  • Reporting problems with the fire safety equipment
  • Take charge of fire drills
  • Ensure all electrical equipment is PAT tested
  • Establish safe havens within the building
  • Ensure that storage is controlled

How Often Do You Need Fire Marshal Training?


The fire marshal training certifications earned after completing the course will expire after 3 years. However, refresher training should be done regularly, ideally once a year. The regularity of fire marshal training can be influenced by several factors, which include:

  • There is a lot of staff turnover
  • Changes to the building structure
  • Working with others
  • Hazardous working conditions such as D.S.E.A.R

Character traits should be considered while choosing a fire marshal. The position demands a well-organised and composed person amid an emergency. Because one of the fire marshal’s roles is to gather information and report to the fire authorities, the perfect candidate for the job will also be responsible and have a sharp mind.
