About emergency, fire warden training.

Knowledge can be the difference between life and death. So the emergency fire wardens have a significant role in preparedness, response, and recovery.

Problem-solving and providing support also to those who may require assistance. Thus, fire wardens need to consider what is happening around them continually. They can learn these skills in most circumstances, and STG Fire Safety Training is well-positioned to provide such education and training.

Furthermore, STG Fire Safety Training can provide emergency management planning courses. In particular, what the fire warden can expect to do during an emergency? Similarly, ensure you achieve full compliance with Australian Standard 3745.
