Frequently
Asked
Questions

Why is fire watch necessary?

Fire watch is required when fire protection systems (sprinklers, fire alarms) are impaired or offline. This ensures continuous fire safety monitoring and compliance with fire codes.

How quickly can you deploy fire watch personnel?

 Seattle Emergency Firewatch specializes in emergency deployment. We can typically have a certified fire watcher on-site within one hour.

Do your fire watchers follow specific protocols?

Yes, our fire watch adheres to strict guidelines set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and local fire codes. This includes regular patrols, detailed logs, and emergency response procedures.

What if I don't have fire watch when it's required?

You could face fines, insurance claim complications, and even business closure by the fire marshal until you comply.

Does my insurance cover fire watch?

Many insurance policies cover fire watch expenses when mandated by the fire marshal. Check your policy or contact your agent.
