Monitoring – Perform regular patrols at certain intervals throughout the day and week that cover the entire facility and all parts of the property. These patrols are undertaken on foot, by motorcycle or on vehicles and include surveillance of specific areas of the building and/or property. The purpose of these periodic patrols is to detect any possible fire occurrences or dangers and warn the management or employees of the danger in a timely manner. It is important for this service to be done in a calm and professional manner so that people are not put in a potentially dangerous situation and that appropriate steps are taken to prevent a fire from occurring.
Reporting and Responding – A company with a Fire Watch Guard unit can provide 24 hours a day fire detection and monitoring. Depending on the type of company and its location, a business can have additional services that may also include fire evacuation routes. The service provider may also respond quickly to alarms for smoke or fire incidents in order to prevent the loss or damage of property or the lives of employees.
