The Role of a Fire Marshal

Fire Marshals perform the vital role of making sure the working environment is safe in case of a fire. Although this role essentially comprises of performing many duties of a fire risk assessment, such as mitigating risks of a fire in the first place, actual tasks will vary from organisation to organisation, based upon factors such as the nature of the organisation, staff numbers employed and the size of the building.

A Fire Marshal’s role is usually split into two different elements, the proactive function of daily maintenance as well as the secondary reactive element during an alarm or confirmed fire.

Although the duties of a Fire Marshal may differ, they can include;

  • Identifying fire hazards at their place of work
  • Note and report hazards to the relevant people (i.e. Fire Safety Officer)
  • Take the correct and necessary action in the event of a fire outbreak
  • Ensure that escape routes are kept clear and exit doors are available for use
  • Fire extinguishers are sealed and in the correct locations
  • Fire alarms are clear and unobstructed
  • The position of fire safety signs
  • All weekly fire alarm tests should be reported if faulty

The Fire Marshal’s role provides fire prevention support to the fire risk assessment process and in the event of an emergency need to take charge, follow fire evacuation procedures and ensure the safety of their colleagues.
