Waking Watch – Fire Watch

Waking Watch (also known as Fire Watch) services are provided by our Fire Safety Team for both commercial and residential properties.  This is a specialised manned guarding service which involves deploying SIA licenced Security Officers to continually patrol all floors and the exterior perimeter of the building in order to respond to a fire, assist in calling the fire service and assisting with the evacuation of the residents.

Waking Watch is designed to protect both people and property in scenarios where normal levels of risk are heightened and standard risk controls are compromised. This includes utilising a simultaneous evacuation plan which is regularly tested, including PEEPs (Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans), which will be in place for vulnerable residents.
