How can Fire Alarms protect your Commercial Entertainment Venue?

Spring is here and that means more people will be out and about enjoying entertainment venues. Last Saturday in New Jersey movie goers at the AMC Lowes Theater were terrified when they heard fire alarms sound and they could not open the emergency doors in the movie theater. Your commercial building occupants should never feel they are trapped and doomed to fatality during a fire emergency or any emergency. You need to have properly operating fire alarms and you need to make sure your fire emergency evacuation systems/ plans are ready to save lives in the case of a fire emergency.

 

Luckily for the New Jersey movie goers, it was a false fire alarm activation. The majority of the movie goers seeing the film ‘Divergent’ did not know that the fire alarms were false. They were just terrified that the theater emergency doors were not operating. It was total chaos when movie goers realized the emergency doors were not opening.

 

In a dark environment, it’s very important that people know where fire emergency exits are located because terrified people run and they can accidentally injure or kill other people trying to escape by trampling them.

 

During a fire emergency people need accurate fire alarms, good lighting,  and mass notification systems.

 

If your fire alarms frequently go off as false activations, it is time for a fire alarm update. People need to know they can take your fire alarms seriously rather than believe your commercial facility only experiences false fire alarms. When fire alarms sound, there’s always a possibility that smoke and fire are near, especially if your facility stores flammable items.

 

Fireline Corporation can update your fire alarm system and keep your commercial facility up to standards so you can have peace of mind you are protecting both life and property.

How could Fire Suppression Systems protect my Construction Site from A 6 Alarm Fire?

A massive 6-alarm happened in San Francisco on Tuesday March the 11th. Fortunately, San Francisco Firefighters were able to contain the massive blaze at the construction site. It took 150 firefighters to get the fire under control at the China Basin area of San Francisco. It can be very challenging to get a construction site fire under control. If you are managing a construction project, how will you protect your construction site from a massive fire?

 

Ideally you will want to have fire suppression systems installed as soon as possible at the construction site. The San Francisco Fire Department faced difficulties exhausting the massive six-alarm fire because the construction site lacked fire suppression systems of water sprinklers and portable fire extinguishers that can help put fires out.

 

It is important to utilize fire suppression systems at commercial facilities (even when under construction) to prevent embers from a main fire from destroying surrounding commercial buildings. If you do experience a fire emergency, you can protect life and property the most by containing a fire within the building or origin.

 

In fact the right fire suppression systems can help you avoid the need to aggressively attack a fire. The goal is to stop fire flames from spreading. If you cannot safely do it on your own, you will want to have the appropriate fire alarms and fire suppression systems designed and installed for your facility.


Fireline Corporation is here to not only protect your property and building occupants from fire hazards but also offer you cost-effective fire safety solutions.

 

Just this month Fire Corporation President Anna Gavin recently attended the Annual meeting of the Fire Suppression Systems Alliance (FSSA) where she served as the Vice Chair to the Installers Division.FSSA is an organization of manufacturers and installers of special hazard fire suppression systems who dedicate themselves to improving the quality of the industry.  Various topics were addressed at this year’s meeting such as petrochemical, oil and gas opportunities in the marketplace and clean agent reclamation and recycling.  A mini-symposium on combustible metals was another key focus and great presentations from fire marshals and specialists in the field were heard.  Attendees also were given a great opportunity to hear an end-user perspective on clean agents, allowing fire protection specialists insight from the other side.  At the end of the meeting Ms. Gavin was nominated and elected to act as Chair of the Installers Division next year as well as sit on the 2015 Program Committee.
