A fire watch is necessary when a fire suppression system (i.e. “sprinklers”) is not in working order. Fire watches are often mandated by the local Fire Marshall’s office to monitor a structure that has a faulty fire suppression system and may present a danger to the life and safety of its occupants.
Unlike other companies, Nortex Security uses paid, professional firefighters that are actively certified by the Texas Commission on Fire Protection in structural firefighting. Their extensive fire training and years of experience in the field make us second to none.
If the need for a fire watch arises it can be a costly expense. Insurance companies would much rather have professionals monitoring a structure than someone with no knowledge of fire suppression.
If a security company doesn’t know how these work, then they have no business doing a fire watch.
We monitor for fire hazards, develop exit plans, understand occupancy loads and other building fire codes.
