In the event of an accident, the fire watch guard one of the first to come to the rescue. The fire watch is able to apply first aid, knows how to fight a starting fire, has experience with the safe evacuation of buildings and acts as a security guard for a large part of the time.
A Dutch Crowd Security fire watch has a number of qualifications. These are basic safety qualifications (VCA), gas measurement and water-carrying fittings (WVA), Buitenwacht and in-house emergency services (BHV). Read all about the fire watch in this article.
The main task of the fire watch is to prevent possible fires. For example, a fire watch is often deployed for vacant buildings with a fire hazard, companies in the petrochemical sector where complex installations are used or on industrial sites with a high risk of explosion.
It may also be mandatory to deploy a fire watch: if the extinguishing, sprinkler or fire alarm system is broken or is being maintained, the insurer or the municipality obliges a company to deploy a fire watch. A fire watch is also mandatory for companies that work with fire and heat during burning, welding or melting. Furthermore, a fire watch is mandatory during renovations for fire safety and during major events, such as festivals, concerts and theater.
