Fire Watch Security Guard

ESM provides Fire Watch for fire departments, commercial enterprises, construction, restoration companies and remote work sites under Provincial Fire Code Regulation, Municipal/City Bylaws and the Fire Protection & Prevention Act requirements.

Fire Watch is a requirement under most fire code and insurance policies for all multi-residential buildings and commercial buildings when fire systems are being repaired or are unserviceable, and electrical outages or water/flood damage when automatic detection systems are disabled. A fire watch is also required when “hot work” is being performed during construction or restoration projects.

ESM Fire Watch personnel diligently watch for fires in the areas affected. They are familiar with facilities and procedures for raising the alarm in the event of a fire and notifying emergency services. Our security professionals are not permitted to perform any other duties and the building is fully patrolled at least once per hour on a 24-hour basis until the fire alarm and/or fire protection system has been restored to normal operating condition.
