What is a Fire Watch service?
A fire watch service is a safety measure designed to ensure your premises are properly protected from danger of fire.
Fire watch services are used when there is an increased risk of fire on your site – due to, for example, alarm systems and
sprinklers being deactivated for longer than four hours, “hot work” (such as welding) taking place, and during hazardous demolitions.
A “Fire Marshal” is a person who is solely responsible for monitoring fire risks, looking out for fire, and ensuring fire
safety best practice is adhered to throughout your premises. Our professional experienced, qualified fire watch staff will
become intimately familiar with your building or premises, will eliminate fire risks, and will ensure complete fire safety compliance.
When Is a Fire Watch Required?
In some situations, enlisting fire watch services is a requirement for fire safety compliance.
The 2015 edition of the International Fire Code (IFC) states that a fire watch is necessary when:
a building’s fire alarm system or sprinkler system will be out of use for continuous four hours;
when “hot work” is taking place within a premise; during some building demolitions; when it is an
essential safety measure in a place of assembly or congregation due to the number of persons, nature
of performance, exhibition, display, content or activity.
You may also wish to procure fire watch services for your own peace of mind.
If you believe that the risk of fire significantly threatens your people, property, or assets,
utilizing professional fire watch services will provide you with an additional assurance that your
business is protected.
What to Expect from Dynamic Security Solutions?
Our professional fire watch services will equip your business with one or multiple dedicated fire watch officers.
These members of staff will focus extensively on managing the risk of fire on your premises.
Our fire watch officers are properly trained, highly experienced, and possess the necessary expertise to properly carry out fire watch work.
We are also able to provide professional fire wardens. This is a person responsible for supporting
the ongoing management of fire safety and contributing to the safety of people in the event of a fire evacuation.
Unlike a dedicated fire watch officer, the role of a fire warden can be carried out in addition to an individual’s day-to-day
activities. We can provide fully qualified security officers able to act in a fire warden capacity.
