Ensuring that your business has a fully trained fire marshal warrants staff and site safety at all times.

Having a designated, qualified person with hands-on experience of using a fire extinguisher is a life-saving investment. Fire marshal training is more detailed than general fire safety awareness training. Your fire marshals will have specific responsibilities to ensure the safety of others in the event of an emergency. Therefore their training needs to be more in-depth.
