About this course

This course contains everything you need to know to become a fully qualified Fire Marshal. This programme is designed to suit the working environment of those within the care sector.

Fire Warden Training in Care is designed to help you understand your legal duties when it comes to performing risk assessments, coordinating fire evacuations and managing emergency procedures. It is suitable for anyone wishing to undertake Fire Marshal responsibilities within a hospital or care home environment and will help ensure your workplace is safe.

Evacuation in a fire emergency and preventing fires within the care industry is an incredibly important role. There will usually be a lot of people to evacuate within a care home and sometimes many of them are not mobile. Therefore, precautions have to be put in place for this.

This training will be broken down into 5 sections: an introduction into what a fire warden's responsibilities are, what preventative measures can be taken, what to do in an evacuation, the different fire extinguishers and a look into the relevant legislation.

This programme also takes a look at basic fire extinguisher use; effective fire prevention measures; and current legislation. Get started today with a free trial! 

This course can be used in conjunction with our Fire Awareness in Care Training. We also provide an array of fire safety training courses.

Course was interesting

Very knowledgeable information in course but maybe a hands on training with fire extinguishers would be beneficial to staff

The course is very long to complete.

It would be more helpful to have a test at the end of each stage. I had to keep coming back to the training to be able to fit it in. I would not have the time to complete this training in one go. It is a very important subject and we don't want staff to feel overwhelmed with the content. Thank you.

Very educative and thorough.

Learnt about different kinds of extinguishers and it's uses, how to tackle fire and following the evacuation procedures.


It was a good module, but may be too in depth for our needs as a small residential home for 12 young people. I prefer the content in Fire Safety in Education.

Why is this training important?


It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

The responsible person (property owner, company director etc) must, where necessary, nominate competent persons to implement those measures and ensure that the number of such persons, their training and the equipment available to them are adequate, taking into account the size of, and the specific hazards involved in, the premises concerned...
