Following the tragedy at Grenfell Tower on June 14 2017, the local authorities have been working closely with the Government and fire chiefs to coordinate national efforts, support councils and undertake urgent reviews of high-rise buildings.
We currently work with a number of bodies supplying trained officers for fire watch duties whilst renovations are ongoing to give residents peace of mind that their welfare is at the forefront whilst these critical safety improvements are being made to their homes.
Please contact us to discuss working in partnership in safeguarding your community.
FIRE WATCH REQUIREMENTS
If a fire protection system fails, or there are an excessive number of accidental activations or nuisance alarms, a building owner (or their representative) may be required by the Fire Brigade to provide a fire watch until the system is repaired.
FIRE WATCH DUTIES
Personnel serving as fire watch have the following duties:
• Conduct periodic patrols of the entire facility as specified.
• Identify any fire, life or property hazards.
• Notify the Fire Brigade if a fire is discovered by calling 9-9-9 with the exact address and type of emergency.
• Notify occupants of the building of the need to evacuate. If the sirens or public address function of the alarm system are still functional, use them both to assist with the evacuation of the building.
• Determine at least one means of direct communication with the Fire Brigade. A telephone is acceptable.
• Maintain a log of Fire Watch activities.
• Have knowledge of the location and use of fire protection equipment, such as fire extinguishers.
NOTE: The fire watch will not perform fire-fighting duties beyond the scope of the ordinary citizen.
FREQUENCY OF INSPECTIONS
Fire watch personnel should patrol the entire facility every 15 minutes in the following situations:
• The area has people sleeping.
• The area is an institutional occupancy.
• The area is an occupied assembly or educational occupancy.
Occupied buildings that do not meet the requirements for a 15-minute patrol frequency should have a fire watch patrol every 30 minutes.
A fire watch log should be maintained at the building. The log must be available to the Fire Brigade at all times during the fire watch. The log should show the following:
• Address of the building.
• Times that the patrol has completed each tour of the building.
• Name of the person (s) conducting the fire watch.
• Record of the communication(s) to the Fire Brigade and monitoring company.
• Record of other information as directed by Fire Brigade personnel.
Keys are held in a secure environment which is fully compliant with BS7984. In the event of an alarm activation, a fully trained and licensed uniformed security officer will attend your premises. Upon arrival, they will carry out a security patrol, determine the cause of the alarm, report their findings to our 24 hour National Communications Centre and implement the agreed escalation procedures.
Assisted Alarm Response
Assisted Alarm Response enables your company to retain responsibility of premise keys whilst providing a duty of care to your own designated key holder.

Upon arrival, the officer will carry out a security patrol looking for signs of an intrusion and take the necessary actions in accordance with your escalation procedures.
Our security officers will arrive at your property in a highly visible, fully liveried vehicle and undertake a full security patrol of your premises at agreed frequencies checking for damage or intrusion. This service includes taking security measures such as locking unsecured windows and doors and preventing potential damage to property by checking for fire and flood hazards.
All visits are undertaken in accordance with BS7499 and are electronically monitored providing an auditable trail of service.
