This may include, but is not limited to, fire sprinklers not working properly, fire alarm malfunction, water being shut off for repairs, fire sprinkler or pump being out of service, heightened risk of fire due to chemical storage, flammable material or hazardous wastes – making it a situation that can be very dangerous if left unnoticed.
What is Fire Watch Security??
Fire watch services are on-site safety functions performed by specially trained security guards.
ESS Global Services typically include:
- Patrolling – Performing patrols at regular intervals during shifts that cover the facility 24/7 and throughout the year if needed.
- Identifying fire hazards – Look for conditions that increase fire risk so that they can be addressed before a serious problem arises.
- Keeping logs – Maintain thorough records of patrols and any information relevant to fire risk, such as any hazards encountered. Logs are often required by the authorities and by insurance companies.
- Checking equipment – A fire watch guard may be retained when the fire monitoring system is not fully functional, but a trained fire watch guard can check on the condition and functionality of the alarms and fire suppression equipment that is available on-site.
- Contact the fire department – If a fire does break out, the fire watch guard will contact the fire department and provide all relevant information.
