Churchill Support Services is one of the UK’s most trusted providers of fire watch security & fire wardens for multiple occupancy buildings such as apartment blocks.
A fire watch service is a safety measure designed to protect your business from the fire, especially where there’s an increased risk of fire on your site – due to, for example, alarm systems and sprinklers being deactivated, “hot work” (such as welding) taking place and during hazardous demolitions.
A “fire watch” is a person who is responsible for monitoring fire risks, looking out for fire and ensuring fire safety best practice is adhered to. Our experienced fire watch staff will become familiar with your premises, help eliminate fire risks and ensure complete fire safety compliance.
A fire watch service could be a requirement for fire safety compliance if a fire alarm system or sprinkler system is out of service for more than four hours; when “hot work” is taking place, during some building demolitions or when it is an essential safety measure in a place of assembly.
You may also wish to procure fire watch services for your own peace of mind. If you believe that the risk of fire significantly threatens your people, property and assets, professional fire watch services will provide additional protection for your business.
Our professional fire watch services will equip your business with dedicated fire watch officers. They will focus exclusively on managing the risk of fire on your premises. Our fire watch officers are highly trained and possess the necessary expertise to properly carry out fire watch work.
We are also able to provide professional fire wardens. This is a person responsible for supporting the ongoing management of fire safety and contributing to the safety of people in the event of a fire evacuation. The role of a fire warden can be carried out as an addition to an individual’s day-to-day activities.
“Churchill Support Services have been awarded the security contract for our new £32M facility here at Newport. When the facility was opened by HRH Prince Charles, there were a number of VIPs on this day, and the Churchill team worked closely with the Royal Security Team to make the day run smoothly.”Read their story >
”Since that first evening of stress and worry, I can now leave our offices in the evening without having to worry. Every touch point from Churchill has led to this point, and I can only thank Churchill Support Services enough for taking the stress off my shoulders. Well done, keep up the good work.”
Businesses frequently turn to private security to provide responsive and dedicated protection. No business wants to become a victim of crime; it damages your businesses finances and reputation, as well as putting employees at risk. Deploying a strong security presence on your site can act as a powerful visual deterrent against crimes such as theft, vandalism, or sabotage.
Whilst security guards do not have the same powers as police officers, they are authorised to perform a ‘citizen’s arrest’ if safe and reason to do so, such as witnessing a crime, protecting others or preventing damage whilst the police arrive.
All security guards must hold an SIA licence to carry out ‘licensable’ activities. We also offer a range of online training courses to all our employees, covering first-aid and health and safety, and so can deploy officers with specific training if required.
If you’re considering a career as a security officer, you’ll need to complete the necessary training to obtain an SIA licence. If you have a licence and are looking for employment, check out Churchill Support Services job vacancies.
CCTV systems can usually be installed within a couple of hours, on the same day. This ensures you can benefit from quality CCTV, without disruption to your business. We can also offer a thorough assessment of your property to create the best installation strategy for you.
Security guards are trained to carry out a number of duties, ensuring they’re always prepared for all eventualities, including:
At Churchill Support Services, we try to be as flexible and responsive as possible. Whilst it’s best to plan your security needs well in advance, we’ll always try our best to provide the security you need within a short time frame.
