Waking Watch Service To Ensure Your Safety

1st Choice Security works closely with active Fire Safety Officers to deliver a Waking Watch warden service that puts safety first. If you have building control issues requiring a policy change from ‘Stay Put’ to a Controlled Evacuation,’ you may have been advised to deploy a team of appropriately trained wardens.

Over the last five years, the team at 1st Choice Security has developed a tried and tested system that complies with the current National Fire Chiefs Council NFCC guidance.

How Do We Carry Out Our Work?

We have developed a three-phase approach to our delivery and training. Firstly, appropriate patrolling, identifying hazards, and raising the alarm. Secondly, a well-rehearsed and tested evacuation procedure like that used by emergency services. Finally, communications with external agencies and handover.

What Is A Waking Watch Service?

A waking watch is a system & a fire safety measure where someone is hired to watch a building during construction or renovation.

The primary purpose of a waking watch is to ensure that the building is safe from fire. Waking watches are common in older buildings, with greater fire risk. They are also sometimes used in new buildings where the fire safety system is not yet operational.

We patrol the building to check for fire hazards and ensure all exit routes are clear. In some cases, we also provide evacuation assistance in the event of a fire. Only trained professionals carry out our waking watch services.

When planning a construction or renovation project, you should check with your local fire authority to see if a waking watch is required. Waking watch services can help ensure your project's safety and protect your investment.

Is Waking Watch A Legal Requirement?

The aim of a waking watch is to stay awake and alert inside a building to ensure it is safe. The idea is that the presence of someone awake and alert will deter potential criminals and help to keep the premises secure.

The waking watch has been used in several different situations, including when there have been concerns about crime, when a property is unoccupied for long periods, or when a property is deemed at risk of fire.

While a waking watch can be an effective security measure, it is essential to note that it is not a legal requirement. This means you are not obliged to have a waking watch in place if you do not feel it is necessary.

However, if you do decide to put a waking watch in place, there are a few things you need to consider. First, you must find a reputable security company to provide the service. You will also need to ensure that the premises are suitable for someone to stay overnight and that the waking watch personnel has adequate sleeping and bathroom facilities.

If you are considering using a waking watch service, it is always best to speak to a professional security company first to get advice on whether it suits your property. 1st Choice Security Ltd is always here to help with your security needs. We operate 24/7 to answer your queries and help meet your security demands and requirements.

Do You Still Need Waking Watch After The Fire Alarm Is Installed?

Installation of common fire alarms is essential for buildings in order to detect fire alarms as quickly as possible. If a fire alarm system is installed in your home or business, you may wonder if you still need a wake-up watch service. The answer to this question depends on several factors, including the type of alarm system you have, the fire safety equipment your building has, and the local fire codes.

Here is some information to help you make an informed decision about whether or not you need a waking watch service.

Your alarm system is the first line of defense against fire, but it is not foolproof. Even the best alarm system can fail or be tampered with. That's where a waking watch service comes in. A waking watch service is a 24-hour fire watch that provides an extra layer of protection against fire.
Waking watch services are required by law in some areas, so you will need to check with your local fire department to see if this is the case. Even if waking watch services are not required by law, they may still be a good idea for businesses or homes at high risk of fire.

Call us if you are still unsure if you need a waking watch service. We can assess your individual needs and make a recommendation about whether or not a waking watch service is right for you.
