Fires can happen at anytime. A spark from a piece of operating equipment, overheating office machines, a lit cigarette in a trashcan, or any of a thousand other causes can ignite a fire. Once ignited, a small flame can quickly spread and grow in size. A commercial fire alarm system can’t prevent the causes of fires, but it can provide personnel with sufficient warning to evacuate the area. It takes mere moments for a fire to grow in size, and these moments can make all the difference in saving lives and property.
Research shows that a typical office fire can double in size every minute. The more fuel that is present, the faster the fire will grow. The furniture, clothing, and paper in an office space are not only NOT fire retardant but become the fuel for growing a fire.
A typical fire department response time is around 4 minutes. Fire departments are preparing for a continued increase in fire calls over the coming years years due to residential and commercial growth which will put a strain on the current response time.
The quicker a fire can be detected and local fire departments notified the quicker a fire truck is on scene to extinguish the blaze. Modern commercial fire alarm systems provide this level of detection and response as well as gathering information regarding where the fire started. This added information makes fighting and extinguishing the blaze even quicker and more effective. Every second saved by rapid detection and alerts provided by a commercial fire alarm system can be a life saved and a business saved from devastating damage.
Commercial Fire Alarm Systems are Worth the Investment
In addition to the potential for loss of lives and property, a fire can put a business permanently out of business. The cost of installing and maintaining a commercial fire alarm system is far less than the potential losses resulting from not having one.
No amount of planning can completely eliminate every potential fire threat. The key to protectection is ensuring that if and when a fire does break out, your commercial fire alarm system can provide timely warning to employees and fire departments.
