Peace of Mind
Your best interests are at the forefront of our priorities and all our operational staff wear a company uniform, carry identification and CSCS Health and Safety ID cards. We insist they are all CRB checked – given that some of the region’s top educational establishments are Firewatch clients, Firewatch offer you peace of mind.
Engineers and technicians are also equipped with camera phones to record site issues and all company vans have tracker units: in an emergency, our telephone receptionist will direct the closest member of staff to your premises.
