Horizontal white line

Advance security preparations ensure your event runs smoothly and safely.

FIRE & HOTWORKS WATCH EXPERTISE

Horizontal yellow line

As a business owner or manager, you know that a fire alarm system is necessary to keep your property, employees as well as visitors safe. Construction and Restoration Service businesses are especially vulnerable if your alarm system is not in place or is inoperable. In such cases, the fire code may require you to hire the services of a fire watch or hotworks guard. Our team of highly trained security guards is capable of handling those circumstances. 

WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING FIRE WATCH & HOTWORKS SERVICES:

Horizontal blue line

PATROLLING:

Perform patrols at regular intervals as per current Fire Codes


DENTIFYING HAZARDS:

Identify conditions that increase fire risk and address them


CHECKING EQUIPMENT:

A trained fire watch guard can check on the condition and functionality of the alarms and fire fighting equipment that is available on-site.


KEEPING LOGS:

Keep thorough records of patrols and any information relevant to fire risk, such as any hazards encountered. Logs can be useful to authorities and insurance companies.


CONTACTING THE FIRE DEPARTMENT:

If a fire does break out, the fire watch guard will contact the fire department and provide all relevant information.


Fire watch guards are not in the business of actually putting out a fire but they will help minimize damage and keep stuff and visitors safe in the event of fire.

WHEN IS A FIRE WATCH OR HOT WORKS NEEDED:

Horizontal blue line

Preventing a fire can mean avoiding loss of life, damage to property, and minimizing liability.

 

CONSTRUCTION SITES - Construction sites contain numerous fire hazards especially when the buildings contain wood framing. A fire watch guard may be required on site continuously until the construction is complete and a certificate of occupancy is acquired to prevent disasters and to cut down fines and down-time.


HOT WORKS PROCESS - Cutting, welding, and grinding create a potential hazard for combustion. Therefore they are considered as one of the biggest fire risks of all on construction sites. Which is why all hot works done on a construction site should be controlled by a permit to ensure the risk is adequately controlled.


ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS - Construction sites need portable electrical systems to get various things done. But while using them, they can easily be damaged on-site in the process. If they are not properly maintained, the equipment could give off heat or sparks that could ignite unprotected flammable building materials.


NON-FUNCTIONING ALARM SYSTEM - Whether a fire alarm system is installed or it is being repaired or replaced, local fire codes may require a watch guard on the premises until the system is fully functioning.


INTERRUPTED WATER SUPPLY - disruption to the water supply will prevent the effectiveness of sprinkler systems. You might need to hire a fire watch guard to protect the property and occupants until service is restored.


STORING CHEMICALS - Storing chemicals can drastically increase the likelihood of a fire. A fire watch guard is trained to minimize danger in these situations.


TEMPORARY HEATING EQUIPMENT - Construction sites can be a very cold place to work if they do not have proper heating systems installed or running. Which is why often temporary heaters that use kerosene or propane, or even electrical heaters are installed for keeping the workers warm.


Failure to properly set them up or to keep them clear of combustible materials could result in a fire. And that’s one of the many reasons why you need fire watch security services by a reliable security guard company.


SMOKING - Carelessly disposing of matches and cigarette butts are one of the most common reasons for the fire on construction sites. As a precaution, smoking on construction sites should be controlled and confined to a designated area. Fire watch guards can help enforce the policies related to it and ensure they are followed.


FLAMMABLE WASTE MATERIALS - Building materials and flammable waste materials like packaging, pallets, & offcuts are around everywhere on construction sites which could easily become fire fuel. Hiring fire watch security services can ensure these materials never build up around the site; instead, they are sent to a designated area with fire and emergency procedures in place.
