Fire Watch Services

USPA is the leading provider of fire watch guard services performed throughout the United States and abroad. We believe the essential obligation of every security guard on fire watch can be broken down into 5 important steps:

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5


Remaining alert and active on patrol are key ingredients to a successful fire watch. We understand every second counts, so we instruct our guards to patrol the premises every 15 minutes.


Sound the Alarm

During patrol if we detect fire, see or smell smoke we immediately sound the alarm alerting others to the potential dangers. If there is no alarm on the premises our guards are instructed to quickly inform and ask that everyone leave the hazardous area.



Our guards are in constant contact with our 24/7 dispatching unit. Within seconds from receiving the call we dispatch the police and fire department to the scene.


Help & Assist

Once the fire department and police officers reach the scene our job is to guide them to the fire and assist with anything they may need.


Report Writing

Documenting the incident accurately is very important and helpful to both the client and the police investigator. Our guards provide detailed reports of the incident from start to finish. Those reports are uploaded daily and shared.
