Many specific events lead to a requirement of fire watch systems and cannot be protected in the complete absence of fire protection equipment or fire-related systems. Emergencies that can’t be handled without proper functioning of fire sprinklers, fire alarm, or water shortage during repairs are plenty in nature as fire might occur due to chemical storage, flammable material, or toxic wastes in industrial, commercial, or residential property due to negligence or manhandling. Thus, making it a situation that can be very dangerous if left unnoticed.
Empire Private Security Officers perform duties on both fire watch or hole watch to sound the alarm in case of an emergency. Their primary duty is to give the alarm or notify personnel so firefighters can be brought into play. Our officers aren’t expected to try and enter the confined space to perform a rescue but will sound the alarm so rescue professionals can attend to the matter.
Trained personnel from Empire Private Security are specially trained and experienced in providing fire watch services to properties that are in the process of installing a fire protection system, or their fire alarm system may not operate normally due to malfunction. Our fire watch security officers remain on site until your fire detection system and sprinklers are fully operational and have been inspected and approved by the fire marshal.
We are also committed to providing fire watch services to cities and state forests during gusty winds and warm weather to make sure we stop the initiated fire from happening or spreading.
Quality fire watch steps:
- Make a written record of patrol in a fire log book provided either by the client, Marshal, or Empire Private Security.
- The officer/s must be equipped with a flashlight, megaphone, flare kit, fire extinguisher, and keys to all doors.
- Patrol the designated areas at least once in every thirty minutes
- Be thoroughly familiar with the area the fire marshal designated as a fire hazard.
- Report hazards to management immediately.
