MediTrain can organise both fire extinguisher and fire safety training for all of your staff or a selected group of employees who will be team leaders or wardens in the event of a fire.

This course provides students with an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a fire and emergency warden in accordance with legal requirements, as well as factors involved in the safe evacuation of a workplace or site in an emergency.

It is good practice to have a number of staff in your workplace who are dedicated fire emergency wardens and can assist other staff members and visitors should an emergency occur. Some organisations such as childcare centres, schools, hospitals and hotels need to have these in place by law under the Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) (Fire Safety, Evacuation Procedures and Evacuation Schemes) Regulations 2018.

Training gives your team the confidence that they are handling the equipment safely and effectively.

Course Content

Once you have chosen your emergency wardens, a training programme can help them feel confident in their role and in the way they help others. Training will include:

  • the duties a fire emergency warden performs
  • how to understand a company's fire evacuation plan and implement it
  • how to conduct training amongst employees such as fire and evacuation drills
  • how to identify fire risks and maintain fire safety equipment

A Fire and Emergency Warden in the Workplace certificate will be issued on successful completion of this course.


To maintain competency, we recommend regular refresher training. Depending on the industry you work in, this will vary. MediTrain’s recommendation is every two years.
