What type of fire alarm and fire suppression system does your business currently have? If it has the recommended early warning and complete automatic sprinkler systems in place, then you’re likely in good shape. As you may be aware, these combined systems have demonstrated an ability to reduce the overall number of injuries and fatalities by at least 50%. They have also proved to reduce property damage by at least 50%.

Do you have a small data center? If your center is located in the United States and is less than 2,500 square feet, you are required to have an Early Warning Fire Detection system. In conjunction with an automatic sprinkler system, this can assist you with protecting vital data.

Over half of the fires that occur in medical facilities are due to confined cooking fires. More specifically, these account for 55% of medical facility fires. It’s important to note that when fires occur in commercial cooking spaces with large oven ranges, 96% of these can usually be extinguished by non-chemical suppression systems.

Fortunately warehouse fires have declined over the past few decades. In 1980, for example, there were 4,700 warehouse property fires. As recently as 2011, however, there were only 1,200 fires in these types of buildings. The reduction of fires in these facilities is attributed to the combination of early warning and sprinkler systems. According to the National Fire Protection Association, they have no record of more than two fatalities when buildings were completely sprinklered and the fire suppression systems were well-maintained and operational.

There are, of course, different types of fire protection services. In addition to fire sprinkler inspections, you may also be interested in learning more about fire sprinkler maintenance and repairs. When you contact a fire protection company, you will be able to find out more about the best possible fire protection services for your business. Furthermore, when a fire protection company visits your business for an inspection, they will be able to determine whether or not you are adequately protected. At this time, you may also want to set up a schedule for routine inspections and other maintenance requirements.
