Fire Watch is legally required when any of the following life-safety systems are fully or partially not functioning:
Florida Fire Prevention Code (FFPC) states If any of the above life-safety hazards occur and cannot be corrected within 4 hours, a building owner or their representative is required to either evacuate the building or provide an adequate Fire Watch until the hazard is repaired.
Fire Watch Security Officers have the responsibility of notifying the Fire Department in the event of a fire-related emergency. Officers 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. The Fire Inspector must confirm that all systems requiring Fire Watch are fully operational, before the service may be terminated.
Our Officers also create value for their clients in tangible and intangible ways. Tangibly they reduce the cost of loss, damage or sabotage to their clients property by professionally carrying out the tasks above.
The foundation of any Safety & Security program is to identify the general risks, targeted risks & common hazards. After identifying the list of possible risks and hazards our team then prioritizes each one in preparation for step two.
Designing a comprehensive Safety & Security plan involves using the identified risks to determine key goals and objectives for mitigating and responding to each.
Further, it involves painting a clear and realistic picture of each risk-based scenario, determining the time and resources needed to address them, identifying decision points, and selecting viable options for an effective response.
Our Officers understand the appropriate use of emergency services like 911 and Fire Rescue and are trained in responsible detention techniques of violent intruders.
