A fire watch guard is a simple task to perform and is designed to minimise the risk of a fire may cause by performing routine checks to detect potential irregularities and to ensure that your current fire alarm equipment is fully functional. Fire watch guards offer full support and guidance to businesses suffering issues with their current fire alarm system, thereby helping to ensure the safety of staff and customers alike. When choosing a provider of fire watch guards, you must first identify which type of alarm guard is required, whether it is an independent or connected service. Many fire watch guards are connected to an existing system, therefore if you are replacing your existing fire alarm system then you should consider connecting your guard to this system. If you are looking to expand the size of your current fire watch protection then you may need to purchase extra monitoring equipment.
Fire watch guards are designed to detect high levels of carbon monoxide in order to warn the public, or if danger is detected, fire protection teams will attempt to extinguish the fire before it spreads. Carbon monoxide poisoning is the leading cause of accidental deaths and can easily be avoided by installing high quality gas appliances in your home or workplace. However, these appliances may be very difficult or expensive to install, and may not be within the competence of many homeowners and building managers, especially in the case of industrial boilers and appliances. Therefore, an independent fire protection consultant will be able to offer the following services to help reduce the risk of fire hazards and protect staff and clients from accidental or planned incidences of fire: fire watch alarms, gas alarms and carbon monoxide detectors, fire safety extinguishers and fire protection routes. These fire hazards may be prevented through regular inspections, maintenance and provision of effective fire prevention systems.
Alarms systems are an essential element in the fight against fire dangers, but are also costly. A fire watch guard system will alert the fire service immediately, reducing the need for additional resources to fight the fire. This is particularly important in the case of emergencies where natural fire prevention methods have failed or been compromised, such as in the case of small domestic fires that break out because of cooking practices or a faulty fridge. However, fire watch guards are an ideal solution for preventing fire hazards, as they can be easily installed in a matter of minutes and can be relied upon to provide regular and reliable protection.
