Waking Watch is a direct and reassuring response to the emergence of fire safety issues in these types of buildings highlighted by the tragic events at Grenfell Tower in 2017.

Waking watch is a fire safety system where suitably trained staff continually patrol the floors and the exterior perimeter of a building to maintain the safety of its occupants from fire. The aim of a waking watch is to ensure there is sufficient warning in the event of a fire to support the evacuation strategy.

A waking watch is required when the presence of dangerous cladding or fire safety issues changes the evacuation policy of a building from stay put to simultaneous evacuation. This change requires fire marshals to patrol the building 24 hours a day looking for signs of fire.

In the event of a fire, our team will alert the emergency services, then ensure everyone in the building is fully aware of the emergency and able to evacuate safely.

Although it is high-rise tower blocks that most typically require our services, we can also work with other types of building.

The importance of ensuring the safety and welfare of not only your assets, but more importantly residents, visitors, and employees.
