A fire watch must be established when any required fire protection system, such as a fire alarm, sprinkler or fire pump, has been out of service for more than 4 hours in an occupied area. The person assigned to the fire watch must be provided with at least one method of contacting the fire department in an emergency, and the fire watch must be their only job duty. In addition, the building owner is required to use an impairment coordinator. An "Out of Service" tag must be placed on the out of service equipment, the fire alarm panel and the connection to the fire department.
- Fire watch personnel are to keep a diligent watch for fires in the general area of their watch. The persons performing the fire watch are not permitted to perform any other duties.
- Fire watch personnel must be familiar with the facilities and with the procedures for sounding an alarm in the event of a fire.
- Fire watch personnel are to have fire extinguishing equipment readily available and must be trained in its use, including practice on test fires.
- The number of fire watch personnel is to be adequate such that each floor, level, and room of the fire area is covered.

Just wanted to commend you guys for your diligent work last night. There was a fire in our building and apparently your guard called 911. Thank God no one was hurt and there was relatively minor damage considering the circumstances.
Have a great Holiday weekend.
