The Importance of Fire Extinguishers
Fire extinguishers may seem like a minor detail in a business structure to passers-by, but they are essential lifesavers to business owners. These tools keep small flames from getting out of hand, and every year in the United States, far more fires are put out with fire extinguishers than with the help of the fire department.
Fire Extinguisher Products
One component of fire extinguisher services is the equipment itself. Each business is unique and needs a professional to fit the right product to each structure. Depending on how large or small your commercial building is, you will need a unit of a particular size. Some are wheeled, industrial units, while others are only two and a half pounds. You will also need to have a product that will preserve the materials you keep in the building. For example, some companies may store valuable electronics. Some fire extinguishers have chemicals designed to put on fires on metal and electronic equipment while keeping them as intact as possible.
Fire Extinguisher Services
The majority of fire extinguisher services, though, include inspection, maintenance, and replacement of units. It is best to sign up for a program to have routine checkups and replacements so that you don’t have to worry about making the next appointment every year. Some fire protection companies, like Fireline, also offer barcoding services for inventory management, industrial unit repair, and guaranteed next day replacement for empty canisters.
Employee Training Course
Just because someone owns a well-maintained car doesn’t mean that person knows how to drive it safely. In the same way, but with more dire consequences, having a fitting fire extinguisher does not mean someone will use it well during a fire. Employee training is highly important for fire prevention. Fireline’s fire extinguisher services include training so your company will know what to do to prevent major property damage and save lives.
