You know what they say about an ounce of prevention. Is your business as protected from the threat of fire as it can be? If you’re like most business owners, fire prevention isn’t something you pay any attention to on a daily basis. However, it’s important to review potential fire hazards and fire prevention tools on a regular basis.
Here are 3 emergency tips for your Florida business owners:
- Fire Extinguishers – Make sure your fire extinguisher is fully charged and operational. Make sure everybody knows where they are and if your business has a kitchen, a kitchen-specific fire extinguisher is a must. This can be the difference between a small fire becoming a business-engulfing disaster.
- Smoke Detectors – If your business has smoke detectors, it’s important to test them, and replace batteries where applicable, on a regular basis.
- Emergency Exits – Make sure emergency exits are clearly marked, known to all and clear of boxes, debris and other obstructions.
We don’t often think about fires or fire prevention in office settings but they happen. Being mindful of fire prevention tools, as well as emergency exits can keep potential emergencies contained and prevent tragedy.
