Fire safety assistants play a crucial role in operational fire protection. They are responsible for acting quickly and effectively in an emergency to protect lives and property. Their tasks range from evacuating people and fighting initial fires to supporting the fire department on arrival. An important question in this context is: who is allowed to train fire safety assistants? The answer to this can be found in DGUV Information 205-023 and depends largely on the qualifications of the trainers.

The answer.

Trainers are required to have professional training in fire safety or relevant professional experience in this field. They must also complete regular training courses to keep their knowledge up to date. Qualified trainers include

  • Fire safety officers with proof of examination,
  • Fire department group leaders,
  • Occupational safety specialists with additional training in fire protection and
  • Persons with a degree in fire protection.

In principle, it is permitted to train fire safety assistants within the company, provided that qualified persons are available. If not, the training can or must be outsourced to external specialist fire protection companies or the fire department, who will train your employees in accordance with the legal requirements.
