3 Ways To Protect Your Business From Fire Damage

Three Fire Preparation Tips

A hungry fire probably isn’t part of your business plan. Follow these three fire preparation tips to reduce the risk of fire damage to your Oak Tree, OK, workplace.

1. Install Fire Alarms
Fire alarms are your business’s first line of defense in the event of a fire. It’s imperative to make sure that both automatic and manual alarms are evenly and carefully placed throughout your entire commercial property. Automatic alarms are those that are built to detect fire or smoke and sound on their own. Manual alarms are those that your employees can immediately pull in the event of a fire.

2. Invest in a Fire Suppression System
From sprinklers to foam, you have a variety of options when it comes to outfitting your building with fire suppression mechanisms. Consult your local fire department or fire damage restoration company to decide which system is best for your property and for your business’s unique needs.
Don’t forget about handheld fire extinguishers, either. Strategically placed manual extinguishers are equally important to your fire preparation plan. Be sure that all employees are trained in fire extinguisher operation.

3. Create an Evacuation Plan
In addition to making sure all employees know how to operate fire alarms and extinguishers, your disaster preparation plan should include an established escape route with which all staff members are familiar. What’s more, it’s vital that you ensure all exit routes and doors are clearly marked and free from obstructions. Doors should remain unlocked during regular business hours and feature brightly lit exit signs.
Don’t forget the back-up batteries, either. All illuminated signage should continue to work even if your building loses power, as should all automatic alarms.
Virtually no business is 100% fireproof. With careful fire preparation, however, you can significantly minimize the effect of a fire on your workplace and give yourself — and your employees — peace of mind.
