Parallel provide a ‘waking watch’ patrol service in properties inline with actions identified by the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) following the Grenfell Tower in 2017. The NFCC recommended the use of personnel to patrol to prevent and detect fire in high rise buildings and evacuate the occupants should a fire break out.
What does 'Waking Watch' mean?
'Waking watch' is a service intended to ensure the safety of resident in high rise buildings in the event of a fire. Our trained staff will patrol the exterior and interior of a high rise building, checking each of the floors to detect early signs of a fire. Should fire be detected, emergency services and resident will be alerted.
