Is your fire safety system ready to protect?
Fire safety systems don’t do much until their needed. But when they’re needed, they need to do a lot. How well planned is your system?
- Check your system at pre-determined intervals. Public buildings may have regulatory requirements for inspections.
- Contract for service plan with a company that has reputable fire safety systems technicians. They’ll be able to spot and repair weaknesses in your system before they turn in to hazards.
- Remember that money spent on adequate fire protection isn’t just an expense — it’s an investment in the protection of your property and the individuals that work or live there. The day your system saves a life, you’ll know it was worth every penny.
- Make sure appropriate employees or tenants know what systems are in place and how to respond in the event of an emergency. They may need to know how to reset a tripped alarm, or how to ensure the system is working properly.
- Regardless of the systems you have in place, have a known and rehearsed fire response plan in place, so that everyone in the structure knows what to do in the event of an emergency.
