Three Steps to Fireproof Your Workspace


With any business, the owner always wants to make sure safety is a major component of the planning. When drafting policy and considering the needs of your employees, safety ranks high on the list. We understand that as a business or building owner, the last thing you want to happen is for someone to be physically harmed. We are here to help with those important concerns. At Millennium Fire and Security, Inc., we specialize in safety from crime and protection from fire.


For your office, store, or any other type of workplace you own or frequent, you want to make sure you have done your best to fireproof the environment. In this article, we are going to go over some of the ways you can achieve fire safety.


Fire Alarm System


For the majority of businesses, you may be required to install and maintain a working fire alarm system. Our fire alarm system is equipped with manual pull stations, 24/7 monitoring, smoke and heat detectors, smoke evacuation system, door controls, and more. Most importantly, our systems meet NFPA state and local codes to keep your system up to date. Codes change every three years and incorporate new laws based on new technology and possibly lives that have been lost due to fire disasters. If an alarm sounds off in time to warn people of a fire, it just might save lives. A fire alarm system is the best layer of protection.


Avoid Fire Hazards


With your system in place, it’s still smart policy to be vigilant about fire safety through certain practices. Fire hazards can show up in hidden ways, and eliminating them from the workplace is a simple way to be one step ahead of disaster. Some fire risks are paper cups/plates left by heated cooking equipment, tangled and frayed wires, built up dust, and flammable material stored close together such as paper, cardboard, and books. Recognizing and minimizing these dangers is an extra level of needed caution to keep your employees safe.


Have Fire Extinguishers Ready


Make sure your fire extinguisher is operational and easily accessible. If a fire were to break out and it is small enough to extinguish, then you’ll be able to quickly put it out. However, if it’s too large, don’t try to play the hero; evacuate while you still can. We also inspect fire extinguishers and can help you have the peace of mind that yours is ready to go in an instant.
