I own a building in Arlington and our fire sprinkler system stopped working. We called VP Security Guards for help, because the fire marshal was threatening to close the building down. VP Security Guards send me two excellent security guards, who were punctual and provided great service, and their account manager discussed all the details of the requirements of the fire watch with the fire marshal. I would definitely recommend their service.
