Looking for an Alarm Response Service?

Who attends your commercial premises when the intruder or fire alarm is activated? Take the onus away from yourself or your staff members and instruct Black and White to be your 24/7 emergency response service.

Often, businesses have their staff attend alarm activations. This could leave your site exposed, as staff are not really trained to deal with risky situations, leaving your employee vulnerable and isolated. You also risk breaching the Lone Worker Policy and may fall foul of the Health and Safety at Work Act. This is where Black and White Key Security can help. By appointing an approved security company for keyholding and alarm response services, you can rest assured that your property and your staff wellbeing is protected around the clock.

Specialising in alarm response we have a team of response officers on the road at all times. These response officers are deployed to attend your premises as soon as we are passed an activation. All attending officers are fully trained by the SIA (Security Industry Authority), fully licensed and insured. They will always arrive in a marked up Black and White patrol vehicle. If we find a serious incident has occurred and need advice we will contact a nominated keyholder but for all other activations our professional team will deal with the situation always ensuring your alarm is reset and monitored. We will then notify you the following morning of the activation and it’s outcome.

Even if you have lost police or fire brigade response then you are still protected, as we will always attend. If we arrive on site and need assistance from another emergency service then we will call them. The Police force have many incidents to attend where as we are dedicated to alarm response.

As standard we ensure that your property is never left unsecure, unalarmed or unmonitored.

All of our fully trained security employees are extensively vetted in accordance with BS7858 before appointment and carry personal identification all times.
