Fire Prevention Practices

Your commercial property in Summerlin, NV, is your responsibility, but it is not always completely under your control. Many people make decisions in your building every day that affect your building’s fire safety status. While you can’t always stop a fire from happening, you can protect your building and its inhabitants from the effects of extensive damage with adequate fire prevention practices.

1. Cooperation

You are not alone in your quest to keep your building standing. Both state and federal fire marshals conduct inspections of commercial properties and can advise you on how to bring your building up to code. Fire marshals can also help you come up with a comprehensive fire safety plan. By cooperating with fire marshals, you not only make their job easier but also keep your building safer with excellent fire prevention strategies.

2. Protection

A building that is well protected by a proper fire suppression system is less likely to sustain significant damage even if a fire breaks out. Every point in your building should be no more than 75 feet from a working fire extinguisher. Fire restoration specialists recommend a fire system equipped with sprinklers that will douse flames and reduce fire damage in the specific area where the fire occurs.

3. Education

Knowing how to avoid or respond to a business fire is the best way to protect your building. Each employee should know safety standards and how to use a fire extinguisher. Fire drills should be scheduled at least twice a year so that all employees know the evacuation procedures in case a fire gets out of hand. Sharing responsibility improves your chances of avoiding damage.

While complete fire prevention is the best way to keep your building safe from damage, it’s also important to have a backup plan when a fire does break out. Enlist both fire experts and your employees to help with your plan.
