So how much does emergency fire warden training cost.

Firstly, there is lots of questions we need to ask about our situation. Some of those may be, does your business require accredited or skills maintenance emergency fire warden courses?  Secondly, how much does fire warden training cost. Is our emergency management plan workable or just a nice looking document that doesn’t really relate to our situation.

About emergency wardens


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

Therefore, fire wardens needs to continually consider what is happening around them. Thus, problem-solving and providing support to those who may require assistance. These skills can be learnt in most circumstances and STG Fire Safety Training is well positioned to provide such education and training.

Furthermore, at STG Fire Safety Training we can not only provide the courses but the complete suite of emergency management planning and fire warden courses. Similarly, ensuring you achieve full compliance, as defined in Australian Standard AS3745-2010, is always part of the goal.
