Three Businesses That Are Most Vulnerable to Fires


At Millennium Fire and Security Inc., we understand that your business is especially important to you. After all, it’s your livelihood. This reality is why we specialize in multiple layers of protection. We offer numerous security systems such as closed-circuit cameras, security alarms, and access control technology. All these products help prevent robbery, secure areas, ward off illegal behavior, and assist the authorities in identifying suspects. Not only do we provide equipment that hedges against crime, we also provide fire safety measures.


All businesses benefit from installing a fire alarm system, which is why there are mandates in place for particular types of businesses to obtain this valuable safeguard. For the protection of your property and safety of your employees, a fire alarm system prevents loss of life and property. Some businesses are more susceptible to fires. Due to the equipment they use, fire may be more likely and prevalent compared to other places. The more vulnerable businesses will benefit greatly by making sure their fire safety system is installed by professionals with expertise in regulations and codes and maintained and monitored to keep it functioning properly. Here are three places that are most prone to fires:




Just think of all the fire-hazardous equipment in kitchens: fryers, stoves, ovens, and more. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), 61 percent of fires in restaurants are caused by cooking equipment. If you’re an owner of a restaurant, you’ll want to make sure your fire alarm system is working and up to date.


Healthcare Facilities


Kitchen appliances are also a leading cause of fire in healthcare facilities. The NFPA found that 65 percent of fires in healthcare businesses are caused by cooking equipment. Hospitals are crucial to the community and those working there every day.  Fire Codes change every three years and incorporate new laws based on new technology and possibly lives that have been lost due to fire disasters. We can keep up with these codes and make sure your patients and employees are safe.


Auto Maintenance Facilities


Numerous fire hazards can be found at auto repair shops. Working with cars usually involves careful tools around cautious machinery. Ensuring you have working fire safety equipment is a smart decision for auto repair stores. An updated fire alarm system in such a precarious setting will keep your mechanics safe.


The lives of people should always be number one. If you are an owner of one of these businesses and discover a faulty fire alarm system or own one that’s out of date, consider repairing or installing one with Millennium Fire and Security. Our system includes smoke detectors, manual pull stations, door controls, and more. To support you even further, we also offer monthly maintenance plans, so your systems can 24/7 operate properly.
