Fire watch is becoming one of our most popular services. American Global Security provides commercial fire watch at several locations throughout California, including several landfills and constructions sites.
We do not provide installation of sprinkler systems, however our staff assigned to Fire Watch projects do receive special training which gives them a good knowledge level of fire suppression systems, how to check for maintenances issues, and how to deal with fire related emergencies.

They are trained to spot fires and on how to sound the alarm and respond if they see one. They also know the signals that could indicate a fire related emergency situation is about to get worse, and how to prevent it from escalating further.
