Why are you replacing waking watch with a fire detection and alarm system?

A waking watch consists of regular patrols of a building, throughout the day or night to ensure the safety of residents.

In future, instead of putting a waking watch in place L&Q will install a new communal fire detection and alarm system instead.

This is more effective than waking watch because the system is able to detect the early warning signs of a fire anywhere in the building much earlier than a physical patrol.
