CHIEF WARDEN

PUAWER006B – CHIEF WARDEN

A Chief Warden is expected to respond immediately to an emergency alarm, determine if an emergency should be declared, decide which emergency procedures need to be implemented and bring the ECO (Emergency Control Organisation) into action. The Chief Warden’s overall duty is to assume control of the building’s occupants from the time the alarm goes off until emergency services arrive (and until emergency service recommendation is granted for re-entry into the building).

Our Chief Warden training program provides candidates with the skills and knowledge required to deal with emergency situations, including making decisions about safety, giving instructions and leading the ECO. This program has been developed for those who have been designated as an emergency control organisation’s Chief Warden. This course will also assist people in the following emergency control and safety roles:

  • Emergency officers
  • Members of an emergency control organisation
  • Wardens and area wardens
  • Security staff
  • Communication officers
  • Emergency coordinators
