How does key holding in the West Midlands work?
In the West Midlands some businesses, typically smaller-sized companies, will nominate a selected member of personnel to respond to emergencies. They will have a set of keys or specific access codes, and will be alerted when an alarm is set off, no matter the time of day or night.
In some cases, this method works for small shops or offices in safe surroundings, but for larger companies, especially companies in busy urban areas or industrial zones, need something more substantial. This is where our specialist key holding services come in.
A professional key holding service like Empire will take the first-response duties on themselves. We will have a set of keys to access your premises, locked up securely in a safe location, and will use them to gain access to the building in the event of an emergency.
The next working day, a report is then sent outlining all relevant details to keep you informed.
