Fire Watch Security Guard Services

Having a reliable and professional fire watch system in place can provide peace of mind for homeowners, businesses and organizations. When there is a malfunction or absence of fire prevention or firefighting devices, a fire watch personnel can help safeguard your property in the event of an emergency.

Our modern homes and businesses are full of potential fire hazards and sometimes automatic fire prevention systems let us down. Fire sprinklers may be out of service or not work appropriately, fire alarms may fail, and there may be a higher risk of fire for various other reasons – such as bad wiring, flammable materials, or the equipment and activities taking place on-site. These kinds of factors can lead to dangerous situations if a fire were to break out unnoticed. However, with our fire watch services, we give you the best in fire prevention.

When Are Fire Watch Services Used?

A fire watch company may be necessary for any area or situation where “hot work” occurs. Examples of fire watch for hot work include work processes such as welding, brazing and cutting. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires the presence of fire watchers in specific circumstances that pose a higher fire risk.

Permanent, temporary, or emergency fire watch services are also available to deploy immediately to emergencies at these sites:

Why Do Businesses Hire Fire Watch Security Companies?

Fire watch companies are invaluable to businesses because they help protect their physical and human assets. Most organizations don’t have the time, resources or knowledge to manage all the fire risks that impact their operations. A professional service can check for potential fire hazards and notify management personnel or the property owner so they can take appropriate mitigation steps.

Violating the stringent OSHA safety regulations — even unintentionally — can lead to costly fines and penalties. A fire watch guard service can identify improper practices, procedures and situations that could result in noncompliance. It can also assist with developing an acceptable fire safety plan.

States and municipalities implement fire codes that companies within the jurisdiction must abide by to avoid violations. Fire watch services can ensure that all facilities are following the regulations.

What to Expect With Our Fire Watch Services

Before beginning our fire watch procedures, we will conduct a tour of your premises if necessary, setting up the patrol area as well as the property that needs our care. Following best practices and state laws, we also provide clients with full documentation of all the areas patrolled and our fire watch plan. During a fire watch, our fire guards stay on site until safety is confirmed. Our team utilizes a fire watch checklist to ensure sprinkler systems, smoke detectors, fire emergency alarm systems, and any other fire detection systems have been inspected, authorized by the fire marshal, and are fully operational.

The fire watch personell will perform these duties:

  • Observation: The guards will scan the location for potential fire threats to ensure early detection of a blaze before it spreads. At larger sites, they will conduct mobile patrols in vehicles.
  • Logging: As the guards make their rounds, they will record information that could be helpful in the organization’s fire prevention efforts. For instance, they can note potential fire hazards such as blocked emergency exits or a lack of fire extinguishers in a high-risk area.
  • Initiate emergency response: If a fire occurs, the guard will ensure the activation of all in-house fire system alarms and contact emergency services and the organization’s management team.
  • Evacuation: Guards will assist people in safely exiting the building or site while following the predetermined evacuation plan.

My company hired Guard Alliance Inc. to help assist me with my property due to our front door breaking, which became a huge security risk for our condominium building with more than a hundred units.

We had been having burglaries for the past few months and this was so important to have overnight protection during the front door break down. They saved us! Thank you so much to the guard alliance team! The guards were great to work with as well. Awesome job!

Frequently Asked Questions About Fire Watch Guards

What is the role of a fire watch security guard?

A fire watch security guard is responsible for monitoring areas or buildings that have fire safety systems (fire sprinkler system, smoke detectors, fire alarm system, etc.) temporarily out of service or during fire-related emergencies. Their primary role is to provide fire protection services such as detecting and responding to potential fire hazards, ensure the safety of occupants, and take immediate action in case of a fire incident.

When is fire watch security required?

It is also necessary during events where large crowds gather and fire safety measures need to be monitored closely or where hot work is being performed.

What are the qualifications of fire watch security guards?

Fire watch security guards should undergo training specific to fire safety and emergency response procedures. They should be knowledgeable about fire hazards, evacuation protocols, and the proper use of fire extinguishers. Additionally, they may need to obtain certifications such as Fire Safety Director or fire guard certification, depending on local regulations.

How long should fire watch security guards be present?

The duration of fire watch security guard presence depends on the specific circumstances and safety requirements. It may vary from a few hours to several days or more, depending on the duration of the fire safety system outage, the ongoing fire risk, or the duration of the event or construction activity.

Can fire watch security guards perform other duties?

Fire watch security guards are primarily focused on fire safety and emergency response.
