Our trained professional guards perform exactly the same duties as regular guards, but in municipalities requiring a ‘fire watch’, it is compulsory for a security guard ‘watching the fire’ to have fire watch training.
Fire doors being replaced – A fire door is used to stop a fire from spreading. If a fire door is being taken down, it is crucial to have a trained fire watch security guard monitoring the entrance area when the location is not staffed.
Construction taking place in a portion of the building – If construction work is taking place only in a certain part of a building, then a security guard will be necessary to make sure no sparks are lit or matches burned to ensure the building does not catch fire.
Alarm system down – When the alarm system is down, it is difficult to tell if there is a fire. The best alternative is to have a security guard respond immediately to any potential fires.
Electricity outage – Power outages are not something that a person can plan, and when a generator is out, there ought to be a backup system to make sure that the place does not catch fire.
Water damage – it’s common for business properties to be destroyed by floods and storms. Having a security guard at commercial property entrances and halls helps in preventing further complications in such situations.
