Fire Watch Service

Fire watch services are critical measures taken to mitigate the risk of fire hazards in buildings or properties where fire detection or suppression systems are impaired, temporarily unavailable, or undergoing maintenance. Here’s the fire watch services Allegiant guard private security provides:

Continuous Monitoring: During fire watch service, trained personnel are stationed at specific locations within the building or property to continuously monitor for signs of fire or other hazards. This monitoring is conducted around the clock, including overnight hours when the risk of fire may be higher due to reduced activity.

Patrols and Inspections: Fire watch personnel conduct regular patrols throughout the premises to inspect for any signs of fire, smoke, or unusual odors. They also check fire detection systems, sprinklers, extinguishers, and other fire safety equipment to ensure they are functioning correctly and ready for use in case of an emergency.

Emergency Response: In the event of a fire or other emergency, fire watch personnel are trained to respond quickly and effectively. They initiate emergency procedures, alert occupants, evacuate the premises if necessary, and coordinate with emergency services such as firefighters and paramedics.

Communication: Fire watch personnel maintain communication with property management, building occupants, and emergency responders using two-way radios or mobile devices

Compliance with Regulations: Fire watch services are often required by local fire codes, building regulations, or insurance policies when fire detection or suppression systems are temporarily unavailable or not functioning properly. Fire watch personnel ensure that the property remains in compliance with these regulations until the systems are restored to full functionality.
