At QUT, the ECO for your building consists of the Chief Warden, Deputy Chief Warden assisted by a number of wardens appointed for each building on campus. The chief warden reports to the Controller in a major emergency involving 2 or more buildings.

The wardens required for each building are appointed by the Security Manager following recommendations by managers of areas occupying space within the building. Managers are provided materials that they may use to make their recommendations. The pro-forma will also clearly specify the obligations of the manager and the commitments required of the position of warden.

The chief warden reports to the Security Manager regarding implementation of a building evacuation plan, coordination of building evacuations and the proper maintenance of warden fire safety equipment.
