Churchill Support Services is one of the UK’s most trusted providers of fire watch security & fire wardens for multiple occupancy buildings such as apartment blocks.
A fire watch service is a safety measure designed to ensure your premises are properly protected from the threat of fire. Fire watch services are used when there is an increased risk of fire on your site – due to, for example, alarm systems and sprinklers being deactivated for longer than four hours, “hot work” (such as welding) taking place and during hazardous demolitions.
A “fire watch” is a person who is solely responsible for monitoring fire risks, looking out for fire and ensuring fire safety best practice is adhered to throughout your premises. Our experienced, qualified fire watch staff will become intimately familiar with your buildings or premises, will eliminate fire risks and will ensure complete fire safety compliance.
In some situations, enlisting fire watch services is a requirement for fire safety compliance. The 2015 edition of the International Fire Code (IFC) states that a fire watch is necessary when: a building’s fire alarm system or sprinkler system will be out of service for more than four hours; when “hot work” is taking place within a premises; during some building demolitions; when it is an essential safety measure in a place of assembly or congregation due to the number of persons, nature of performance, exhibition, display, content or activity.
You may also wish to procure fire watch services for your own peace of mind. If you believe that the risk of fire significantly threatens your people, property and assets, utilising professional fire watch services will provide additional assurance that your business is protected.
Our professional fire watch services will equip your business with one or multiple dedicated fire watch officers. These members of staff will focus exclusively on managing the risk of fire in your premises. Our fire watch officers are properly trained, highly experienced and possess the necessary expertise to properly carry out fire watch work.
We are also able to provide professional fire wardens. This is a person responsible for supporting the ongoing management of fire safety and contributing to the safety of people in the event of a fire evacuation. Unlike a dedicated fire watch officer, the role of a fire warden can be carried out as an addition to an individual’s day-to-day activities. We are able to provide fully qualified security officers able to act in a fire warden capacity.
“Churchill Support Services have been awarded the security contract for our new £32M facility here at Newport. When the facility was opened by HRH Prince Charles, there were a number of VIPs on this day, and the Churchill team worked closely with the Royal Security Team to make the day run smoothly.”Read their story >
