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.

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.
