Fire protection is a necessity, not a luxury. It should never be an option. Many business owners think a fire could never happen to them. Unfortunately, fires are more common than you might think. The National Fire Protection Association estimates that there are 90,000-100,000 fires in commercial spaces and businesses across the U.S. every year.
|Property Type||Reported Fires|
|Industrial and Manufacturing||38,000|
|Food and Beverage||7,400|
|High-rise and Office||18,000|
|Hotels and Motels||3,500|
Fire Protection For Businesses
According to a recent study by the National Fire Protection Association, nearly one-third of workplace fires occur because of cooking equipment negligence and faulty electrical distribution. As business owners, you may be at risk. Ensure that a range of fire protection systems are installed in your facility to create a safe working environment for all. Installing fire and smoke detection systems, fire alarms, kitchen fire suppression systems, sprinkler systems, fire extinguishers, and emergency lighting are investments worth making to protect your people and valuable assets. One frequently neglected option when it comes to commercial fire and life safety systems is emergency exit lights. Its importance in guiding your employees to safety simply cannot be overlooked.
Fire Protection For Restaurants
Not surprisingly, restaurant fires can cost a business catastrophic losses in both revenue and reputation. With open flames, flammable materials, and extreme temperatures, restaurant fires occur frequently and are notorious for not only causing significant interior damage, but also structural damage. Implementing the correct kitchen fire protection with a wet chemical suppression system is an absolute must for all restaurant owners.
Fire Protection In Schools
According to nationwide fire safety studies, cooking related mishaps are the leading cause of fires within schools. This is why having a comprehensive fire suppression and far-reaching alarm system is imperative. Not only is implementing a fire protection and alarm system vital, but it is also essential that students and teachers alike are trained in the proper fire safety protocols. Installing fire alarms, smoke and chemical detectors, emergency exit lighting, fire sprinklers, portable fire extinguishers, and commercial kitchen fire suppression systems are essential components to include in your checklist. Frequent and regularly scheduled maintenance of these systems is also necessary to ensure that they will work properly in case of a fire emergency.
