The following are responsible to provide orientation in case of affected areas to the Fire Guard:
Fire safety director (FSD)
Fire safety coordinator
Construction site fire safety manager
The building owner, impairment coordinator
Other on-site personnel
When fire guards arrive at the affected area they should be provided with an orientation. The orientation may come from the fire safety director (FSD), fire safety coordinator, construction site fire safety manager, building owner, impairment coordinator or other on-site personnel.The person providing orientation must be familiar with and responsible for the buildings fire protection systems.
Normally, there is at least 1 fire safety director in a Group B (Office Building) or Group R-1 occupancy (Hotel) building. The fireguard must work closely with the FSD (Fire Safety Director).
At most construction sites, there will be at least one construction site fire safety manager (or site safety manager or site safety coordinator). The fireguard must work closely with the fire/site safety manager closely.
If there is no FSD available in the building, the fire guard should speak to the building owner or the responsible person designated by the building owner to become familiar with the specifics of the building.
