Fire Warden / Marshall

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) defines the duty holder as the ‘responsible person’.  They are accountable for the general fire precautions in place for any non-domestic premises.  These general precautions will include a fire emergency plan and the ‘responsible person’ can appoint other people to assist in the execution of this plan.  If this is the case, they must have appropriate training to ensure they can do their task safely.
