FIRE SECURITY OR PROTECTION?
Fire security is another term for fire protection. It’s basically all about making sure that a home or work environment is secure from the dangers of a fire and the safety of people and property is protected as much as possible.
To get a little technical, Fire safety is the set of ways intended to reduce the destruction caused by a fire. Fire safety measures include those that prevent an uncontrolled fire from starting, and measures that are used to control the spread and effects of a fire if it one starts.
That means stopping a fire from starting in the first place and putting it out as quickly as possible.
This is where expert advice and professionally installed and serviced fire equipment can prove to be life-saving. Protecting yourself and your employees is always the top priority.
SAFETY COMES FIRST
If you are an owner of a building, you have a number of fire safety obligations.
These are crucial to the safety of everyone who lives, works or visits the property.
You have a responsibility under the regulations to ensure that various fire safety matters are appropriately addressed so there is a lower risk of a fire occurring. These include:
- Ensuring that fire-fighting equipment is properly maintained
- Ensuring stairwells, passageways and exits are free from obstacles and unlocked in case they are required in an emergency
- Maintaining appliances and managing any open flames
- Taking special care when packing or unpacking goods with flammable material
- Carefully storing any possible flammable materials and waste
There are no second chances when it comes to fire.
The most important thing about fire security services and fire protection is that your home or workplace is as safe as possible. There are thousands and thousands of cases where having the proper fire security services in place could have saved property and more importantly, lives.
