This will depend on the size and type of premises. Buildings such as hotels, schools, residential care homes will need more staff to assist with the evacuation plan than other types of premises.
As a rough guide, have one fire marshal or fire warden for every one minute of search time. Also elect a suitable number of deputy fire marshals in case the usual fire marshal is away from their work station, on holiday or sick.
Why not book on one of our fire marshal courses or book an on-site fire marshal training session for your organisation.

Remember our course are based on government guidance and British Standard recommendations and fire service best practice.
Everyone knows that well trained fire marshals can help evacuate persons quickly and safely in an emergency, but with the correct fire marshal training, fire marshals can help an organisation fulfil other statutory fire safety obligations. We can tailor to in house fire marshal training programmes to include mini fire safety audits and hazard spotting routines, assisting with updating fire emergency plans and fire evacuation procedures, helping with routine fire safety checks such as fire alarms, emergency lighting, fire extinguishers, fire doors etc and by helping to train new starters and temporary workers.
Our fire marshal courses are based on our previous experience as fire service trainers with the industrial training programme. The courses are based on a mixture of advice gained form government fire safety booklets, BS recommendations and fire service best practice advice.
Our in house fire marshal courses Essex are very popular. We do not place any limit on numbers of persons on an in house fire marshal training in Essex. We just need a room big enough for the number of delegates we will be training. If you select a practical fire extinguisher training session then we need a space outside about 5-6 car park spaces, away from combustible or flammable materials, not visible from a main road and not accessible to the public. We will carry out a risk assessment on the day to ensure we can eliminate any other possible hazards etc.
The frequency of fire marshal training is determined by the findings of your fire risk assessment and fire emergency plan. Government guidance and fire service best practice advocates refresher training every year but in some circumstances a case could be made to have refresher training every two years. For example: a small office where the fire marshals have been in place for a long period may not require such frequent training.
There is no difference between fire marshals and fire wardens. They perform the same function – the safe evacuation of occupants of a building.

This will depend on the findings of your fire risk assessment. In low risk premises / persons have been employed for many years you may decide to elect for less frequent training. For buildings or premises that are high risk or there is a high turnover of staff, fire training will need to be carried out more frequently.
Many organisations carry out fire training annually for fire marshals and slightly less frequently for all other general staff. Remember, all persons who have a role in the fire evacuation procedure also need additional training – for example : evacuation buddies, persons calling the fire brigade, person liaising with the fire brigade.
