What is fire watch?

Fire watch is when people patrol areas watching for signs of fire when any aspect of a buildings’ fire alarm, sprinklers or fire suppression system is not functioning.  Fire watch patrol personnel walk the affected areas watching for signs of fire.  Patrol times, areas, and observations are recorded on a patrol log.  In most cases, fire watch is regulated by the local or state jurisdictions. In other cases, fire watch must meet OSHA fire watch requirements.
