Covered in this course
The Fire Warden Training in Care course is broken down into 5 sections.
In the first section of this course, we take a look at the basics of what a Fire Warden is and what their responsibilities broadly cover. We also introduce some general information about the dangers posed by fire, common fire signage and the potential costs associated with fire damage. And we look at fire detection systems in care settings.
2) Prevention Measures
This chapter covers the importance of performing fire risk assessments, as well as exploring the importance of performing regular and organised fire evacuation drills. We look at the need for a fire emergency plan and a fire evacuation plan. In this section we also look at people who may be at particular risk, explaining what personal emergency evacuation plans are and who may need them.
3) Performing an Evacuation
Understanding what is involved in a safe evacuation is crucial for any fire marshal. This section of the training covers human behaviour in the event of an evacuation, and allows the delegate to appreciate the key role of the fire warden in maintaining safety and order in an emergency situation. We look at evacuation equipment and refuges and explain the evacuation strategies appropriate to care settings.

This was very clear and easy to watch listen and understand
a very comprehensive module however, it took much longer than the 78 mins suggested to get through the slides alone without the test in addition at the end. ? need more time allocating for this module
No summary provided
Says it take 78mins to do course (not including the test), actually took nearer to 2hrs to listen to 101 slides, felt it was far too long!
All good but noticed that there were a few "stutters" on play back where at the end of some slides words were not said that was in the transcript also one video slide with the fire officer was out of sync - perhaps it was my internet connection but I average 26.3Mbps.
A very good course. Easy to follow. Clear information.
A thoroughly enjoyable course with good balance of videos / information.
A very good and informative course that didn't overwhelm with information and stats. The short burst video's made it easy to take information in and remember it. Good use of video and having actual fire wardens/fighters introduce sections made it feel less like online training.
