If you manage a commercial building, there are no room for mistakes when it comes to your fire prevention plan. When an error occurs, it can spell serious trouble for both the building itself as well as the contents inside. Even worse, clients and emplyees can also be placed in danger when commercial fire prevention doesn’t go as planned, so being prepared is absolutely critical. In today’s blog, we offer some tips for commercial fire prevention that may help you a avoid disaster.
Everything You Need to Know About Commercial Fire Prevention

Fire suppression systems and fire extinguishers
While fire extinguishers are necessary to keep on hand in order to manage small fires, a fire suppression system is crucial for preventing serious, large-scale damage to your building. Again, both extinguishers and suppression systems should be tested regularly and recommended maintenance should be performed routinely. Also be sure that all staff are trained on proper fire etinguisher use so that they are prepared in the case of an emergency. Extinguishers should be kept in a place that is easily accessible.
When emergencies occur, it is important to have an emergency lighting system in place in order to provide a means of safe escape. Emergency lighting should be installed throughout the building and must be regularly maintained and inspected.
