The 4 Top Steps for Fire Preparation

A business fire definitely qualifies as a disaster. To minimize the effects of a fire on your company a number of proactive steps should be taken. The top four actions to take for effective fire preparation in Plum Springs, KY, include some basic common sense and some smart planning.

  1. Equip your building with strategically placed smoke alarms and fire extinguishers
  2. Install a modern fire sprinkler system that protects the most crucial areas of the business
  3. Educate your employees on what actions to take when a fire breaks out
  4. Call in the fire department and a local fire mitigation team

Proper disaster preparation saves lives and property. It reduces business expenses and leads to a rapid recovery.

The Right Equipment

The fundamentals of fire preparation demand working smoke alarms and fire extinguishers. Alarms alert everyone to a fire quickly while extinguishers can be used to put out a small fire. Make sure someone is responsible for checking on these items periodically for functioning batteries and expiration dates. A sprinkler system brings water to flames quickly and is a great way to limit fire damage. The system will only be activated by flames and will not go off by itself or from small fires such as a lighter or cigarette. A good system can put out a fire on its own.

The Right Knowledge

Employees trained in the best practices of fire response have a crucial role to play in protecting your business. They can direct other workers and clients to the fastest exits and they can call the right people immediately. A faster response gives the fire less time to gain momentum. A small fire will do less damage and result in a shorter period of business interruption. The best fire preparation also takes into account the cleanup of soot and smoke damage in the aftermath. Professional cleanup removes water from the site and seeks to protect sensitive electronics from further harm.
