Don't Let Your Place Suffer from Fire Damage

2/1/2022 (Permalink)

In Northport and Tuscaloosa, commercial fires are often the most devastating reality that a property owner will have to deal with. In addition to forcing you to relocate temporarily so you can maintain running your business while the restoration process is being completed, fires can wreak havoc on your property and emotional well-being. Fortunately, property owners who access and implement high-quality safety practices can often avoid the destruction and devastation that results from Northport and Tuscaloosa commercial fires.

Learn how you can protect your property with these tips: 

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. 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: 


Inspect your power sources regularly and don't overload your extension cords and outlets.

Hazard Recognition

Keep all combustible chemicals and materials away from heat-generating and electrical equipment. 


Teach your employees how to respond when a fire breaks out. Some subjects that should be covered include how to perform an organized evacuation, properly operate the fire extinguisher, and set the fire alarm. 

Other issues that should be involved in the training include:

• Fire Extinguisher Training

• Breathing Apparatus Training

• Confined Space Entry Training

• Evacuation Exercise

• General Staff Emergency Awareness Training

• First Aid Training

Also, make sure that your employee team officials undergo the following fire emergency response training: 

• Fire Safety Officer Training

• Fire Safety Adviser Training

• Chief and Deputy Chief Warden Training

• Emergency Control Organization Warden Training

• Lay Flat Hose Training

• Spill Response Training
