Security guards who are working for private estates or corporate facilities (small to big) are often the first responsible people responding to a fire situation in a building. This means security guards, in effect, become, fire safety guides when a real fire breaks out. Security officers are charged with the protection of people on a property and the property itself. In the case of an outbreak of fire, security officers are the first responders. Sometimes, they’re the ones who first spot the outbreak of a fire, and are responding even before fire retarding systems go on. As part of fire prevention and response, security guards are essential.
Our WWPro private and business security guards are well trained in general fire response procedures, and, as well, in the specifics of whatever building they’re currently providing security for. A key part of our management is making sure our guards are prepared for fire outbreaks in a variety of circumstances, and that they are current in the specifics of a client’s fire response needs. This includes evacuation protocols for customers or people in a venue, excellent familiarity with where exit doors and escape routes are, where fire fighting equipment is stored, who to call in fire emergencies, how to assist fire fighters, and what is the follow up for fire evacuation and response.
