Frequently asked questions

Can you provide references from clients who use your fire marshal training London programme?

Yes. We can provide references from a number of clients who have used our fire marshal courses in London programme and/or have had in house fire marshal training London. Our referees LLPs based in the city, global businesses, hotels and embassies!

Many of our clients have block bookings on our courses. Your team can also be trained in this way. Either email us or call us for more details.

How often should fire drills be carried out in a workplace?

This will depend on the type of workplace. It will also depend on the level of risk and hazards in the building and the type of occupants. In addition, turnover of staff, the number of shifts and a few other factors.

Theatres, residential care homes, schools, high rise premises etc should have more frequent fire drills than other types of workplace. If a workplace has shifts or night workers more drills should be carried out. This ensures that all occupants understand the procedures to help them evacuate a building safely.

In other workplaces such as offices every employee should take part in at least one fire drill per year. Therefore two or more fire drills held each year to account for persons who were on holiday, sick or away from the workplaces during the first drill.

These fire safety issues and others are explained on our fire marshal courses in London. We provide open fire marshal courses and in house fire warden training London. Attendees can discuss the correct procedures and gain a full understanding of the importance of practicing fire evacuations at their workplace. We can also run a fire drill at your on-site fire warden training London course. Our team will set a scenario and monitor fire marshals and staff. We can then provide a debrief highlighting any issues or areas of improvement.

How soon can you come to our site for fire training?

We have a number of trainers who can provide fire training at your premises. If you need a course without live training we could carry out training within a week or so. If you require a live fire extinguisher course, we will need our training rig. You may have to wait a little longer if it is already in use.

Do we need a disabled evacuation procedure?

Yes. All workplaces and also other buildings should have a disabled evacuation procedure. The complexity of the plan will depend on the type of building, workplace and the also number of persons in the premises.

For example a small shop could have a very simple plan. Appointed staff could assist a person with disabilitties from the building in the event of fire. This easy plan should be writing.

More complex buildings which may have a number of disabled persons will need more robust plans. This may involve the use of evacuation buddies, evacuation equipment and disabled refuges. The plan will need to consider all eventualities and will need to be practised.

This issues are covered fully in our fire marshal training London open courses.

What is a fire door survey?

A fire door survey is an inspection to determine whether a door will hold back fire and smoke for a predetermined period.

Some contractors ask third party fire door inspectors to provide evidence that a fire door has been installed to the correct standard.

Older fire doors will not usually comply with current standards. Therefore some managers require that such doors are brought up to a higher standard. For example the door may be upgraded to include combined smoke and heat seals. Other doors may have been repaired so no longer can be passed as “certified fire doors” A fire door survey will look at such issues sich ashinges, fire glass, heat and smoke seals, slef closers, frames and door rebates etc.

A fire door surveyor will examine the door to determine whether the door will resist fire for the required timescale.

How many fire marshals do we need?

Fire safety law requires a building to have a sufficient number of trained persons to implement the fire evacuation plan.

The number of fire marshals will depend on the size of the building, the type of workplace and also whether there are different work shifts.

As a rough guide you will need one fire marshal and one deputy for each 0 seconds of the search area. To calculate how many fire marshals you need per floor: Get one fire marshal to carry out a check of the entire floor and time them. If it takes two minutes you will need two fire marshals and two deputies.

We discuss the different types of accounting procedure on our fire marhal training London open programmes. To book your paces on our course either call or email us.

Do you provide fire watchmen training courses?

Yes. We do offer fire watchmen training courses. The training is based on NFCC (National Fire Chiefs Council) guidance, London Fire Brigade workplace training advice and also British Standards. The fire watchmen training is based on waking watch advice and how to raise the alarm in the event of a fire or suspected incident.

We have provided fire watchmen training for buildings fitted with cladding. The fire watchmen training was reviewed by inspecting officers for a building requiring fire watchmen.

For more info about fire watchmen training, either or email now!ca

Do we need new procedures for the COVID pandemic situation?

If there are any change of circumstances in a workplace, then fire procedures and also plans should be reviewed..

The COVID pandemic has meant that many workplaces have downsized, so there are less persons in a workplace. This may include less fire marshals or fire wardens. Therefore, fire marshal training for existing persons could be required and also possibly a new evacuation plan. For example, moving from a sweep system to a roll call.
