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.
