Waking Watch and Fire Watch Services

Waking Watch Security

A.P. Security is proud to be one of the UK’s most trusted Security Services providers. Our team are dedicated to delivering  a highly professional service and our security officers have achieved SIA contractor status, giving you peace of mind that their standards of performance are exceptional.

A.P. Security provide both permanent and temporary Fire Watch Services (known as Waking Watch Services) for apartment blocks, high rise buildings, commercial properties, and vacant buildings. If an emergency occurs, our team will contact the emergency services and alert everyone within the building of the emergency and evacuate them securely.

Our committed waking watch officers adhere to an Active Awake Alert policy and will work with you to reduce dangers, including loss of life, whilst keeping your business running smoothly. Our vigilant team of experienced security personnel have worked in many public-facing settings, are highly dependable and incredibly professional. Round the clock waking watch can not only prevent the worst from happening but it can also transform the wellbeing of people working or living in the building because they have the reassurance that they are being taken care of.

The team will ensure that residents or employees feel secure in the knowledge that their safety and the safety of the building is maintained, even at night. As part of our role, we also regularly undertake risk assessments and fire safety checks.

Our service is also supported by a 24-hour control room and our Protect24 app which allows you to monitor safety updates, with real time reporting. It is imperative to us that we provide our clients the sense of security and reassurance that comes with our waking watch services, which is especially important after the horrendous events that occurred at Grenfell Tower in 2017.
