When you think of “New Year’s Resolutions,” you might envision someone signing up for a gym membership. However, New Year’s Resolutions apply to businesses as well. Your list as a business owner might include “improve productivity” or “pull in more top talent.” The list could be endless and are most likely goals you never keep off your radar. We encourage you to make fire safety a priority. However, when was the last time you evaluated how safe your building would be if a fire were to happen? Here are a few fire safety New Year’s Resolutions to tackle this year.
Improve Your Fire Safety Training
Routine fire drills are where most companies stop regarding their fire protection plan or employee training. However, this shouldn’t be the case. Well-trained hands can extinguish a fire before it becomes a large flame that presents a problem resulting in injury, property damage, or worse.
Consider the Advantages of Fire Alarm Monitoring
Fire alarm systems must be present in all commercial buildings because they are vital to any fire protection plan. However, a loud alarm only warns or alerts people about the danger they could face. It’s even better when emergency services and all employees who might be off-site know about the fire. Adding a fire alarm monitoring system to your fire safety plan can be significant. These automated systems operate 24/7 and contact firefighters, emergency services, and any associates on a list you create directly. This simple, cost-effective addition gives you more time to save your business from severe fire damage.
