Fire Watch Security Guard Service – Log Angeles, CA & Nearby

Specially Trained To Identify Possible Hazard Areas

Firewatch can help out anywhere but they’re predominantly used for spaces where construction or renovation is taking place and the presence of tools and construction equipment creates an increased risk for fire. This is far from the only type of site they work with. Sometimes if there are repeated malfunctions in fire detection systems a city might require a building or business to hire a firewatch security guard to be a watchful eye and detect fires by hand. Often firewatch is assigned until the problem is solved. Depending on your location it could be quite beneficial to have a fire expert on hand to help with prevention. Firewatch is a niche in security but it’s one whose importance can not be overstated.

Firewatch Responsibilities

Prevent Fires And Monitor Possible Risk Areas


Inspect Premises

Firewatch like other types of security has to patrol the premises to ensure that the area is secure and that no new threats to security have taken form. Firewatch is this especially true as new problem areas can arise for any number of reasons. Should a problem area make itself known then a firewatch guard will either solve the issue or monitor the situation so that everyone can stay safe and secure.

Surveillance Check

An essential aspect of monitoring any location is ensuring that the monitoring equipment works and using that monitoring equipment to watch more of the premises in less time. There are also routine maintenance procedures that must be taken care of to keep everyone safe. Part of the surveillance check is performing this maintenance.

Building Check

Different parts of the building and property will be susceptible to different types of fire risk and it’s the job of firewatch security to assess these risks. During these inspections, they’ll also make sure that there are no points where risk is being taken unnecessarily. If there are then it’s the job of firewatch security to either fix the issue, report it, or monitor the area so that if a problem arises it can be dealt with quickly before it can cause any damage.

Preventive Tasks

Fire is not something you wait for and expect to happen. Prevention is the only way to keep everyone safe and our firewatch security guards are prevention experts. Our guards are trained with the best prevention methods and techniques so that they can keep your business safe and stop harm from ever coming to it.

Emergency Response

In an emergency, especially when a fire is involved every second counts. You need a quick and decisive response to minimize the damage from a fire. Firewatch security can handle a small situation with an immediate response. Should the fire spread beyond what a firewatch guard can handle they can contact emergency services quickly with all of the proper information for a fast and appropriate response.

Firewatch Service FAQ

Firewatch security guards are a specialty branch of security guards that have been specially trained to deal with fires and are tasked with the prevention of fires throughout the property they’ve been assigned to protect. A traditional security guard may have a passing knowledge about how to stop fires and the steps to prevent them but nothing like the specialty knowledge that comes when a security guard is trained for firewatch. If you need firewatch security it’s always best to get firewatch security and not a traditional security guard to handle firewatch duties.
Like all of the guards on our team, detailed record keeping is a requirement. Should there be a situation when a hazard makes itself known and the problem can’t be solved during the shift then the firewatch guard will make and file a report detailing the hazard so that anyone who might need to know about the hazard can be made away of it. Our guards take pride in the quality and accuracy of their reports because a good report helps to keep everyone safe and secure.
Firewatch is rarely a permanent position. They are often brought in while fire systems are undergoing prolonged maintenance, or they’re malfunctioning repeatedly. They’ve also brought in when a building or property is undergoing some form of renovation or construction due to the increased risk for fire the catch in a construction zone. Often these positions are filled when they’re needed and then the guards will be moved to other locations that need firewatch security. You may have a need for permanent firewatch but it’s uncommon.

Ontyme Security saved us! We were out of town and our property was under attack in a terrifying residential nightmare. We called Ontyme Security and Nas answered immediately. He instantly recognized the seriousness of our situation and was at our property within an hour. From that moment on, his calm reassurance made us feel our property was safe and protected. Elena, the office manager, treated us with kindness and compassion, helping to make a stressful situation bearable. Either Nas or one of his very qualified associates was at our property 24/7. They had eyes on everything and kept us in the loop at all times. The professional, effective, and intelligent plan Nas coordinated resulted in a safe outcome for both persons and property. We thank Ontyme Security so very much and would highly recommend them for any security need.
