Waking Watch


Our Waking Watch (or Fire Watch) service ensures your building is constantly monitored for the incidence of fire, providing reassurance and peace of mind to building occupants. We provide professional Waking Watch services across Peterborough and the wider Cambridgeshire area.

What Does the Waking Watch Service Include?

Covering both commercial and residential premises, our Waking Watch service is of benefit to commercial units as well as high rise buildings and other sites where cladding may be of concern.

Our Waking Watch officers have to remain vigilant and pro-active throughout to notice any changes which may compromise safety on-site. They will patrol premises to identify potential implications that may affect safety, and conduct frequent fire safety checks and safety exercises to assess the welfare of the residence. They will ensure emergency exit points are not obstructed and stairwells are constantly clear.

Your Waking Watch patrols are monitored consistently through GPS technology so we can always see where our officers are at any given time.

Our officers will also:

  • Keep corridors and doorways clear.
  • Carry out visual inspections of the building perimeter.
  • Clear rubbish and debris to prevent potential fire hazards.
  • Inspection of stairwells and cupboards to ensure they are not obstructed.

Why Do I Need a Waking Watch Service?

  • Provides safety and reassurance to building occupants
  • Minimises building damage through early fire detection
  • Ensures building occupants are able to be evacuated quickly and safely should a fire take hold

SIA Licensed Guards

Our Waking Watch guards are all based in the Peterborough and Cambridgeshire area. They receive extensively training, are SIA licensed, and DBS checked. As part of our initial security consultation, we’ll get to know your security requirements to ensure you get the right waking watch guard that fits to your business requirements.

SIA is the regulating body for the private security industry. Their strict licensing criteria ensures that private security operatives are ‘fit and proper’ persons who are properly trained and qualified to do their job.
