FIRE WATCH SECURITY

"Blue Raven Inc. Fire Watch Services can ensure the safety of your premises with our dedicated professionals who stand guard and are ready to act at the first sign of smoke or fire."

Fire watch services are often a legal requirement in many jurisdictions when fire systems are nonoperational (due to maintenance, repair, or are in the process of being installed) to maintain compliance with fire safety regulations and avoid potential fines. They serve as a proactive measure to minimize the risk of fire damage and protect the lives of occupants and visitors, as well as safeguard the property and assets within the facility.

Blue Raven Inc. Fire Watch Division, can ensure that there is always a trained professional on-site who can monitor for any signs of smoke or fire, maintain fire safety protocols, and take immediate action in the event of a fire outbreak, which includes alerting the fire department and ensuring evacuation procedures are carried out effectively.

We understand that sourcing qualified Fire Watch personnel can be challenging, especially since the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services, along with neighboring jurisdictions like Maryland do not mandate licensing for this role. To address this, we offer two prime options: State Registered/Licensed Security Officers and certified Firefighters. We particularly recommend certified Firefighters for their specialized expertise, readiness, and training. This option tends to be preferred by our clients, as it not only assures a good rapport and communication with the local fire department, but also has a positive effect with the insurance providers.

WE CAN PROVIDE FIRE WATCH SERVICES TO ANY INDUSTRY INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO:

  • MEDICAL
  • INDUSTRIAL
  • CONSTRUCTION
  • NEIGHBORHOODS
  • SCHOOLS
  • RESTAURANTS
  • PRIVATE VENUES
  • HOTELS
  • OFFICES
  • WAREHOUSES
  • SHOPPING MALLS

At the beginning of their fire watch duties, Blue Raven Inc.’s professionally trained Fire Watchmen will conduct a comprehensive survey of the property to familiarize themselves with high-risk areas and the reasons necessitating the fire watch. They will identify and assess the presence of any flammable or hazardous materials, ensuring these zones receive heightened surveillance and security. They will maintain a detailed fire log, documenting all relevant observations and checks, which is readily accessible for inspection by both the fire authorities and property owners.

In the event of detecting an immediate hazard, our Fire Watchmen are trained to quickly communicate the danger to the appropriate Fire Department and alert the building’s occupants. Should the alarm systems be operational, they will activate them and assist with the evacuation of the personnel and ensure they are brought to a safe area.

Understanding that many clients may not be familiar with fire safety protocols, our personnel are prepared to offer guidance and critical information should a potential threat escalate into an emergency.
