Fires are devastating
Property damages, asset loss and even causalities can be the result of fires. If a fire protection system fails then disaster can strike. A Fire Watch can be required for the building as long as the system failure or malfunction exists.
Upscale Security offers 24 Hour fire watch services that are customized to protect your personnel and property.
