Fire Warden Course

This 4-hour course will provide you with the knowledge and training in fire safety as required by the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and the Fire Services Act 1981.

At the end of this course you will know your duties as a Fire Warden and the actions to be followed during a fire or an emergency. This course will also provide you with the skills to recognise the importance of fire prevention and how to implement a fire prevention ethos within the workplace.

The course will also focus on Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans (PEEP), record keeping, fire drills etc. We promote the culture of prevention rather than cure.

Participants will be given the opportunity to complete a practical on our premises (29 Lesson Street Upper, Dublin 4) once the Covid-19 crisis has rescinded. This practical will include evacuating a building, discharging fire extinguishers and how to use a fire blanket (Please note, a real fire is not used in the practical).

What precautions are in place in light of Covid-19?

Since the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak, St John Ambulance Ireland has put strong measures in place to help prevent the spread of the virus and protect the health of our members and members of the public while carrying out our training courses. These measures include:

Prior to attending one of our training courses, learners will need to complete a visitor declaration form. On review of this form, St John Ambulance confirm your attendance. On the day of the course, learners will need to confirm there have been no changes to their visitor declaration form and they are symptom free before being allowed to enter the hall.

Markers outside of the training hall indicate 2-meters social distancing. Learners will enter the porch and sanitise their hands using an elbow operated dispenser before entering the hall. Inside the hall there are markings on the floor outlining the walk routes to ensure social distancing is maintained. Learners will be asked to remain in these walk ways.

Learners will complete the practical in their own ‘pod’ which is separated either side by clear-perspex.

The pods, desks, chairs will be sanitised prior to the course by persons wearing appropriate PPE.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available at 2 stands within the hall. Only 1 person may attend the stand at a time. Learners will be asked to sanitise their hands before getting their tea/coffee. We encourage people to use a napkin when using the burco. All cups and spoons will be single use and either recyclable or biodegradable. Biscuits will be individually wrapped.

Only 1 male and 1 female can use the toilet at a time. There are elbow operated sanitisers en route from the training hall to the toilet.

On leaving the building learners will again need to sanitise their hands.
