Gemini Fire & Electrical offer a variety of training courses at work including Fire Evacuation and Fire Warden/Marshal training. All courses can be tailor made to your specific company requirements

The final part of the training will be the live fire demonstration with our fire training rig. The different types of extinguishers will be introduced. For this demonstration the trainer will need an open area of approxamately 3 car parking spaces.
How many Fire Wardens / Fire Marshals do I need?
The numbers of Fire Wardens / Fire Marshals within an organisation is based on geographical area, not on how many people are working there. For instance it should take a Fire Warden / Fire Marshal no longer than 1 minute from when the fire alarm activates to ensuring that their area of responsibility has been checked and cleared and they themselves are either on a protected staircase or outside a final Fire Exit.
Each area should have a Fire Warden / Fire Marshal and as many deputies to ensure there is always cover for holidays and sickness.
The Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order / The Soctland Fire Act requires that the responsible person appoints sufficient competent persons to assist with the provision of general fire precautions for the workplace and to ensure that they are and remain suitably trained.
When is Fire Training is necessary?
Training should be repeated as often as necessary and should take place during working hours. Whatever training you decide is necessary to support your fire safety strategy and emergency plan, it should be verifiable and supported by management. Enforcing authorities may want to examine records as evidence that adequate training has been given.
