Alarm response: always ready to respond

Whether it's responding to a false alarm, a crime in progress or an escalating fire, you don't have to put yourself in harms way. In an emergency, when your alarm goes off, you can depend on our alarm response team to keep your business safe.

  • Rapid response

    Firstly we visually assess the premises from the outside conducting a dynamic hot risk assessment. The faster you respond to a fire or intruder, the less damage to your business. By having an alarm response system in place you can ensure that disruptive and unwanted journeys are a thing of the past.

  • We've got it covered

    When responding to your alarm patrols and checks are immediately carried out. We will check your external and internal premises and interrogate the alarm system to establish the reason and area of alarm activation. This means there’s less disruption to you and your team’s work/life balance.

  • Rest assured

    We ensure the correct action is taken following a alarm call-out, such as resetting the alarm or depending on the situation contacting the emergency services. You can ensure you'r fully prepared in the event of an emergency.
