Fire Watch Program

Fire Watch is a program which encourages the establishment of dedicated personnel within a nursing home or long-term care facility entrusted with the responsibility to prevent and/or react to emergency situations in event of a fire. Their sole duties are to observe for emergency situations and to prevent unsafe acts.

Below is an on-line course, completion of which is required for all designated Fire Watch personnel as well as the official Fire Watch Log which must be maintained by the facility.

Should you have any questions about the Fire Watch Registry, please contact at (225) 925-4911.
