Waking watch is a fire safety system where suitably trained staff continually patrol the floors and the exterior perimeter of a building to maintain the safety of its occupants from fire.

A waking watch aims to ensure sufficient warning in the event of a fire to support the evacuation strategy.

A waking watch is required when the presence of dangerous cladding or fire safety issues changes the evacuation policy of a building from stay put to simultaneous evacuation.

This change requires fire marshals to patrol the facility 24 hours a day, looking for signs of fire.


Following the Grenfell tragedy and forthcoming new safety standards, there has been an understandable rise in concerns about high-rise building safety. As a result, more waking watches are being recommended and used.

The use of waking watch reduces the time from when an incident is confirmed, to building evacuation, to around 10-15 minutes.
