Fire watch services by our security agents typically include:
They perform patrols at regular intervals during shifts that cover the facility 24/7 and throughout the year.
They keep thorough records of patrols and any information relevant to fire risk, such as any hazards encountered. These logs are required by the authorities and insurance companies.
Contacting the fire department
If a fire does break out, the fire watch guard will contact the fire department and provide all relevant information. Though fire watch guards are not in the business of actually putting out a fire, they will help minimize damage in the event a fire does break out.
They keep a watch and identify conditions that can increase fire risk, and ensure it is addressed before a problem arises.
When the fire monitoring system is not fully functional, a trained fire watch guard can check on the condition and functionality of the alarms and fire suppression equipment available on-site.
When Is a Fire Watch Guard Needed?
If you prevent a fire, you can avoid loss of life, damage to property, ultimately minimizing liability. It may be necessary to call upon the services of a fire watch guard in any of the following circumstances:
There are numerous fire hazards on construction sites, especially when the buildings contain wood framing. Many local governments require a fire watch guard on-site continuously until the construction is complete and a certificate of occupancy is in hand. Compliance also cuts down on fines and down-time.
Water supply is interrupted
If the property relies on a sprinkler system, disruption to the water supply will prevent its effectiveness. A fire watch guard may be necessary to protect the property and occupants until the service is restored.
Business with a non-functioning alarm system
Whether a commercial property has not yet had a fire alarm system installed or it is being repaired or replaced, local ordinances may require a watch guard on the premises until the system is fully functioning.
Presence of extreme fire hazards
Activities such as storing chemicals can drastically increase the likelihood of a fire. A fire watch guard is trained to minimize danger in these situations.
