24/7 Fire Watch Security

ARDENT’s Fire Watch Guards are tasked with fire prevention duties, extinguishing small fires, notifying and assisting occupants with evacuation, as well as, protecting life and property in accordance with their state-regulated training.

It is the responsibility of the owner, or their representative, to contact the Fire Marshal’s office once the fire protection systems are repaired or the hazard has been mitigated.

After the Fire Inspector has confirmed that systems requiring the fire watch are fully operational, then the Fire Inspector will terminate the fire watch. If any of these conditions occur and cannot be corrected within four (4) hours, the building owner or their representative is required by the Florida Fire Prevention Code (FFPC) to either vacate the building or provide a fire watch until the system is repaired or the hazard mitigated.

Fire Watch Security Officers have the responsibility of notifying the Fire Department in the event of a fire-related emergency when…

1. Fire alarm system is partially or fully out of service
2. Fire sprinkler system is partially or fully out of service
3. Fire pump is out of service
4. During chemical hazards
5. Other conditions as required by the Fire Department

Fire Watch Security Services are often legally mandated by state and local ordinance anytime a commercial or residential property is facing fire alarm or sprinkler system issues.

(NFPA 101-9.6.1.6* Where a required fire alarm system is out of service for more than 4 hours in a 24-hour period, the authority having jurisdiction shall be notified, and the building shall be evacuated or an approved fire watch shall be provided for all parties left unprotected by the shutdown until the fire alarm system has been returned to service.)
