Businesses have enough to worry about already – they don’t need to be worried about what to do if the building alarm goes off in the middle of the night. And that’s exactly why businesses leave that to alarm response and key holding expert agencies.
How does it work?
It’s quite simple: you find a trusted security company, preferably one that is an SIA Approved Contractor and instruct them to provide a reliable response service. If an alarm is to go off, whether it has been a fire alarm activation, intruder alarm or even a false alarm, trained response security guards will get to the premises fast. They will investigate the activation and take the appropriate actions. You can rest assured that whatever the situation, the guards will know how to deal with it quickly.
Why chose an SIA Approved Contractor to Handle Key Holding & Alarm Response?
The purpose of the SIA’s Approved Contractor scheme is to increase standards of security companies. Once a company qualifies on the voluntary scheme, it is subjected to robust regulations that ensure exceptional standards in quality of service. The SIA establishes a system of inspection for companies to aspire to meet the Private Security Industry Act 2001 requirements.
What are the benefits?
The key advantages of instructing a professional security company to respond to your building’s alarm activations are:
– You have peace of mind 24 hours a day, seven days a week that your premises will be kept safe
– You will not need to be called out late at night to respond to an alarm activation
– You avoid potential risks by having professional security guards responding to activations
– Rapid response guards can prevent fire damages, vandalism, sabotage and burglary to your premises
As well as all these great security and safety benefits, you also have peace of mind that a copy of your keys is being kept in a secure safe and if needed can be easily accessed. Most reputable key holding companies can be called out to open your building in the case you forget your keys or lose them. This will help in preventing disruption in your business.
The response security will also respond to leaks, floods and power-cuts. This saves you time and potential loss of money.
