A fire watch guard is a trained professional responsible for monitoring a building or area to detect any signs of fire or potential fire hazards. Fire watch guards are typically deployed when a building’s fire alarm system is non-operational, or during construction or renovation work, which may increase the risk of fire.
Fire watch guards are trained to identify potential fire hazards, such as overloaded electrical circuits, combustible materials, or smoking in prohibited areas. They are also responsible for ensuring that all fire safety equipment is functioning correctly, including fire extinguishers, sprinkler systems, and emergency exits.
In the event of a fire, fire watch guards are responsible for alerting the occupants of the building, initiating an evacuation, and providing assistance to emergency responders. Fire watch guard service is critical in preventing fires and ensuring the safety of people and property, and it is an essential component of fire prevention and response plans.
