Warden And Extinguisher Use Course Set
Warden And Extinguisher Use course has been designed for individuals who are required to implement an emergency response as specified in the facility emergency procedures or specified by a person at a higher level in the emergency control organisation (ECO). Individuals who undertake this work will be working within the command, control and coordinate structure of the ECO.
