Prevent Fire Damage Before it Happens!
In Tuscaloosa and Northport, commercial fires are often the most devastating reality that a property owner will have to deal with. In addition to wreaking havoc on your property, fires can force you to relocate temporarily so you can maintain running your business while the restoration process is being completed. Fortunately, property owners who access and implement high-quality safety practices can often avoid the devastation and destruction that results from Tuscaloosa and Northport commercial fires. Here's a brief outline to learn how you can protect your property:
1. Install Automatic Fire Sprinklers.
As many authorities know, having an automatic fire sprinkler on your property can reduce the risk of fire by up to 71%. Additionally, sprinklers can decrease your insurance premium. To keep your sprinkler in excellent condition, be sure that it is not blocked by dirt or paint. Also, be sure to inspect regularly your main control valve so that it is not left off. Finally, be sure that you take the precautions necessary to prevent the pipe from freezing.
2. Conduct Fire Emergency Training.
Each of your employees should undergo fire safety training. The training can help prevent your staff members from being victimized. Here are a few subjects that should be covered in emergency training:
Keep all combustible chemicals and materials away from heat-generating and electrical equipment.
Inspect your power sources regularly and don't overload your extension cords and outlets.
Teach your employees how to respond when a fire breaks out. Some subjects that should be covered include how to perform an organized evacuation, operate the fire extinguisher, and set the fire alarm.
Other issues that should be involved in the training include:
• Breathing Apparatus Training
• Fire Extinguisher Training
• Confined Space Entry Training
• First Aid Training
• General Staff Emergency Awareness Training
• Evacuation Exercise
Also, make sure that your employee team officials undergo the following fire emergency response training:
