A fire can break out at any moment. It only takes a chemical reaction between oxygen and a fuel source for a fire to put property and life at risk.
Fire ignition creates the most damage at high temperatures. Heat is what makes a fire sustainable.
The hottest temperature of a fire is located at the base of the fire. The fire at the base appears blue.
The coolest area of a fire is located at the top. The color appears orange or yellow.
It is important to know that gases from a fire are denser than the air surrounding the flame.
If a fire occurs at your commercial business, how would you contain it?
If you have to think more than 3 seconds about your plan to combat a fire, it’s time to identify effective fire protection systems for your business.
An excellent fire protection system you should have installed for any commercial building is an automatic sprinkler system.
To put it simple, automatic sprinklers save lives and property.
How do sprinklers save lives and property?
Automatic sprinklers save lives and property by monitoring rooms for any potential fire break out.
The room could be unattended and the sprinklers will still self-activate if a fire occurs.
The job of automatic sprinkler systems is to contain a fire.
Fire containment reduces property damage and increase time allotted for evacuation.
Automatic sprinkler systems have saved lives and property in:
– College housing
– Office buildings
– Industrial facilities
– Residential properties
It is essential to have the latest automatic sprinkler system technology to ensure utmost public safety.
Sprinklers are especially life savers and property protectors when they contain and keep small fires under control.
Sprinklers give firefighters the time to arrive and put out fires before they can develop into infernos.
The following are fire safety tips that can save lives:
– If you’re cooking, never leave the stove top unattended. This rule should be followed for frying, grilling or broiling. Keep a timer on your food at all times.
– Inspect electrical appliances and cords. Any damage components should be replaced.
– Have a fire evacuation plan. This plan should be practiced at least two times a year.
-Have automatic sprinklers installed throughout your building. You should also have portable fire extinguishers readily available.
– Have smoke alarms installed and tested. Test should be conducted at least once a month. After 10 years of age a smoke detector should be replaced.
