What is Fire Watch Security?
If work is being done on your property which involves open flames or sparks, there is a higher chance of a fire. Our guards serve as a vital role in keeping the property and people safe and secure. Here are a few Firewatch services:
- Patrolling – We look out for any smoke, open flames, or rising temperatures. We also identify and remove hazards that block emergency exits.
- Keeping logs – Logs are often required by insurance companies and the authorities.
- Checking equipment – Our guards maintain a supply of emergency fire equipment to extinguish small fires until the fire department arrives on the scene. We also check on the condition and functionality of the alarms and fire suppression equipment that is available at your site.
