KRE Fire Watch Services Teams Can Do for Your Business

No two sites are the same. For that reason, our guards must be acutely aware of the unique needs of each client. However, there are a number of standard tasks that a fire watch guard patrol is required to accomplish while on duty. This meets local codes enforcement and provides an extra layer when commercial systems are not in operation. 

Fire

KRE Fire watch guards will: 

  • Watch for signs of a fire such as smoke, increased temperatures, flames or odors via hourly patrols of your property.

  • Identify other potential hazards that could pose safety issues or impede the ability of emergency response teams to combat a fire. 

  • Check exits to make sure there are no blockages or other hazards that would prevent an evacuation. 

  • Verify that fire extinguishers are present and in working order. 

  • Carry appropriate supplies that would allow them to combat a small fire or assist in evacuation procedures such as fire extinguishers, flashlights, building keys and communication devices. 

  • Understand the building layout and evacuation procedures.

  • Possess pertinent contact information for business owners or other business contacts as well as local law enforcement and fire departments. 

  • Call 911 and provide emergency assistance to reduce property loss. 

 

Depending on the severity of the risk, KRE fire watch patrols will make their rounds at regular intervals until the danger is mitigated. Guards are required to keep a log of each patrol round, to include information such as date and time of the patrol, name of the patrolling guard, status of the patrol and record of any incident. Unless they are certain that they can safely and adequately manage a fire situation, guards do not attempt to extinguish fires on the premises.
