Are you the manager or owner of a commercial business or multi-family residential property? If so, you probably know better than anyone the importance of keeping your place of business, employees, customers and/or clients safe. Part of that involves proper fire protection. If you aren’t sure about the type of fire protection or plan that your business currently has here are some things to think about:
1. Types of Fire Protection Services – The great part about looking into fire protection services is the variety you will have to choose from. From fire alarm systems, to fire sprinkler systems, and even fire suppression systems you are sure to find what you are looking for. A recent survey involving 119 businesses showed that only 35% of the respondents had any kind of fire evacuation plan. That number is extremely low – make sure your business doesn’t fall into that category!
2. Commercial Fire Protection – When it comes to which fire protection system is right for your particular place of business only you can know that for sure. However, you may want to consult with experts in the industry before making your final decision. While you are deciding keep this statistic in mind: the National Fire Protection Association has no record of a fire killing more than two people in a building where the sprinkler system was properly operating.
3. Multi-Family Residential Property Fire Protection – Whether you are strictly looking for apartment fire protection, duplex protection, or to protect properties within your condominium association there is a solution out there for you. Apartment fire protection for large complexes is typically quick to install and repair. The four types of property classes that account for 50% of high-rise fires are apartments, hotels, offices, and facilities that care for the ill.
As a business owner we know that the protection of your building, employees, and customers is a top priority for you. Don’t forget that part of that priority involves fire protection. Find the best type of fire protection services for your business and schedule annual maintenance to make sure that it’s always taken care of. You’ll have confidence knowing that if anything was to happen you would be protected.
