Escape Plan & Fire Drills

Escape Plan & Fire Drills

In the event of a fire emergency, you will have as little as 2 minutes to escape from the burning structure once the fire alarm sounds. Predetermined escape plans and routes save lives that you and your co-workers can use to get to safety. It is essential to have an escape plan sorted out in case of an emergency and carry out fire drills at least a couple of times a year.

  • Practice various scenarios of getting out of the office using different routes.
  • Do not keep furniture in places that might block passage through a window or a door.
  • Teach family members that it's important to save their own lives first rather than trying to save belongings.
  • Call 911 as soon as possible.

Fire Alarm Safety Tips by Business Services of NC

Fire alarms are proven to prevent fire-related death in many situations. Check your fire alarm once a month to ensure that the batteries are working and check the fire alarm system itself to see if it is armed. Your fire alarm could mean the difference between escaping a painful death and getting burnt down by the building.

Office Fire Prevention Tips

  • Electrical Malfunction - Electrical fires can cause severe damage to your property. Faulty or old wiring; incorrectly installed wires; overloaded circuits; overused extension cords or defective appliance cords all cause electrical fires. Damaged wires should be replaced and circuits and extension cords must not be overloaded.
  • Open Flames - Open flame disasters happen due to unattended fires like candles. Inspect the area around the flame and keep flammable objects away from contact. If you have a fireplace, install a metal mesh to stop the sparks from flying around.
  • Cigarettes - Cigarette smoking is a major cause of fire incidents. A cigarette butt that has not been extinguished properly can burn through an item of clothing or paper for hours and introduce a large flame. Make sure cigarette butts are properly smoldered to prevent such accidents from rising.
