Floor Warden Awareness – Fire Evacuation Procedures

Fire Evacuation Board

The Floor Warden Awareness training package ensures that Floor Wardens and Building Wardens have a clear understanding of their responsibilities and actions expected of them in the event of an emergency which affects their building and its occupants. Content includes material on Fire Evacuation, Bomb threats, Earthquakes, and Incident Management.

Handouts and practical course content are key features of the Floor Warden Awareness course. In-house training is the ideal as people learn about the buildings they work in and the facilities available to them. Section 8 of the Fire Safety and Evacuation of Building Regulations 2006 states that the occupants of a building who are employees of the owner of the building or, if the building is tenanted, the occupants of the building who are employees of the tenant, must be trained to assist any other occupants of the building to evacuate the building, in a fire or emergency requiring evacuation, in accordance with the evacuation procedure for the building.

Delivery of the Floor Warden Awareness course can include Evacuation Chair training for those who are required to assist people with disabilities during an evacuation. We are able to attend trial evacuations and provide feedback for wardens as well as give practical advice on improving evacuation response.

Duration: 4 hours, usually run in the morning.

NZQA Unit Standards: 18408 (Credits 3, Level 3).
