Fire Safety Tips To Think About
Fire is more sly and less discriminating than a thief. It can travel (spread) through very small openings and concealed spaces to reach other parts of a building, deprive occupants of a life supporting environment, and cause partial to total destruction of property.
Some have an attitude in this country that "fire won’t happen to me," that "it is someone else’s problem." Americans also place a lot of blind faith in their local fire department to save them and their property from any fire that may occur, and believe insurance will cover the rest. Reality is very different.
Planning now will determine how quickly your company can get back to business after a fire. Did you know that around 80,000 serious workplace fires occur every year in the United States? Your location, industry, and facility size can greatly affect your choice of fire protection equipment, so find out exactly what you need before you invest.
How do you find out? First, call your local fire department and schedule an appointment for the Fire Inspector to visit your business and they will tell you exactly what type of fire protection equipment you need. Next, call EFR Fire & Safety with your Fire Inspection report in hand and we will deliver your equipment directly to your business.
Fire Safety Training
EFR FIRE & SAFETY PROVIDES TRAINING FOR COMPANIES AND EMPLOYEES
More important than the preservation of property and machines, is safeguarding the lives of staff and visitors. Life safety must always come first. Management must ensure that employees know what to do in the event of a fire.
Instruct employees on how to turn in an alarm (phone, manual pull station, etc.). This is the first action that should be taken upon discovery of a fire. If the alarm is not sounded first, the lives of co-workers and visitors are needlessly endangered.
