Floor Warden Program


A trained emergency team can make a significant difference in the success of a fire-response plan.  Floor Wardens are assigned to each floor or department within a building to help ensure that all are aware of an emergency situation and facilitate appropriate staff response.

UCSF Health offers monthly Floor Warden training rotating at Mission Bay, Mount Zion, and Parnassus that covers the following topics:

  • Floor warden responsibilities during a fire alarm
  • R.A.C.E.
  • Building fire/life safety features
  • Fire triangle
  • Types of fires
  • P.A.S.S.
  • Hands-on fire extinguisher simulator training

Although the training focuses on Floor Warden duties in the ambulatory clinic setting, staff working in the hospital environment are also encouraged to attend.  To view and/or register for upcoming training dates, go to UC Learning Center, log in, and type “UCSF Floor Warden Training” in the search bar.
