The recent legalization and regulating of cannabis in Canada has caused an explosion of activity in the industry in just a short time. Over the past year, we have seen the number of production facilities increase dramatically, as well as their security needs, and now to include the needs of legal dispensaries as well. The evolution of the legalized cannabis industry has resulted in a scramble to educate cannabis facility operators on their security needs as stipulated by Health Canada guidelines.
Bulldog Fire and Security has a wealth of knowledge and experience in this industry, working with numerous facilities to ensure they are compliant with Health Canada, while also addressing their other security needs. Our team has an in depth understanding of:
- Medical Marijuana Production Security and Clearances.
- Health Canada’s Cannabis Act.
Services & Solutions for Cannabis Facilities
Bulldog Fire and Security will work with your consultant, as well as your construction and operations teams to develop a system that will ensure that your facility is secure. A comprehensive system may include elements such as security gates, access control, security cameras, and an intrusion alarm system.
Cannabis regulations indicate that access to areas where cannabis is grown, stored, or handled must be restricted to staff who are required to work in those areas. To achieve this, facilities utilize a mix of ID cards or key fobs, and card readers to manage and track access in your facility. Access Control systems can be utilized with both interior and exterior doors, and are scalable so that they can change as your business grows.
The perimeter of your facility as well as all areas where cannabis is produced, stored or handled must be monitored at all times. A networked security camera system throughout the interior and exterior of your building is a requirement in order to satisfy the requirements by capturing and recording data 24/7 to protect your staff, products, and building.
ULC Listed Monitoring
A ULC Listed Monitoring Station acts as a set of eyes to provide your building with 24-hour coverage that will alert you and the appropriate emergency responders of any alarms or emergencies.
Integrated Security Solutions
An integrated security solution brings together all of the elements of access control, security cameras, and intrusion system in a collaborative way to maximize the capabilities of your system. Through integration, you can receive video clips that coincide with the arming and disarming of your security system. You can also receive notifications if someone tries to access an unauthorized area, lock down specific areas if an intruder is detected, and/or provide you insights into user behaviour.
