  • 5 Reasons Why Now is a Perfect Time to Evaluate the Fire Detection System on Your Campus

    One step in fireprevention on educational campuses is education itself. Providing students and faculty with the knowledge of fire safety and prevention and how to properly respond in an emergency situation will go a long way. But in an emergency, time is a valuable resource between evacuation and arrival of our first responders. Since 2000, college campuses have seen 86 fatal fires claiming 123 lives at facilities or housing within 3 miles of campus. Between 2007 – 2011, fire departments in the United States responded to an estimated average of 3,810 structure fires per year in campus housing facilities causing $9 million in property damage annually.

  • Fire Safety Week Roundup: Installing Smoke Alarms

    As part of our celebration of Fire Safety Week (October 4-10), we would like to join the discussion and look at the most crucial aspect of saving lives in a fire...detection. Did you know the first fire alarm was invented in 1890? Or that smoke detectors were not required to be in homes until 1973? Laws have evolved over time as fire protection became more affordable, but the effect is indisputable. Since 1980, the number of deaths from residence fires has diminished by roughly fifty-percent.

  • Is Your Dry Sprinkler Dry?

    It seems that all of winter hit in one month — February. Are you particularly concerned about the large, unheated, remote warehouse you manage for your company in the Middle Atlantic region? Your company accepted your recommendation to install a dry sprinkler system in the warehouse because staff don’t go there until or unless stored items need to be moved and you were rightly concerned about the possibility of busted pipes when the temperature drops below 40°F. Since there is no standing water in the pipes, that system should not require as much routine maintenance as a wet or deluge system, right?

  • Life Safety Device Inspection for Healthcare Facilities

    One of the highest priorities in any healthcare facility is a Fire and Life Safety system that is properly installed, fully functional, and thoroughly and regularly inspected. When Plateau Medical Center, a Joint Commission accredited healthcare facility in Oak Hill, West Virginia, met with our experienced and certified FLSA team, we listened to their needs and worked with key members of their staff to develop a fire and life safety device system that complies with all national and local medical standards.

  • Private Fire Hydrants Proper Maintenance of Private Fire Hydrants is Critically Important

    On June 19, 2014, a 2–alarm fire broke out at the Vintage apartments just outside of the FLSA Houston office. The complex was an older development that at the time was constructed without fire sprinklers. With the fire spreading quickly, fire fighters attempted to connect their hoses to private fire hydrants on the property but...they soon realized all hydrants were out of service and had been for years.

  • Smoke Detector Sensitivity

    Are Your Smoke Detectors Too Sensitive, Not Sensitive Enough, or Just Right?

    Most people simply expect and assume the smoke detectors located in their facility to “just work.” Without complete, scheduled sensitivity testing, there’s no better way to determine whether or not they’re functional and protecting your facility and occupants as intended.

  • Sprinkler Systems

    The Top 5 Things You Should Know About the Test & Inspection of Sprinkler Systems

    Sprinkler systems are as critical to personnel safety as “clean agent” (inert gas) fire suppression systems. Sprinkler systems are used in offices, hallways, lobbies, and other areas where people congregate and work and where the likely combustible materials do not require inert gas to suppress a fire.

  • Step-by-Step: Checking your Smoke Alarm and Sprinkler System

    Did you know that a recent study concluded that 3 out of 5 home fire deaths resulted from properties without working smoke alarms? That is why it is imperative to not only install a fire protection system into your home, workplace or other commercial building, but to also ensure that it is in proper working order. Having a smoke alarm or sprinkler system that doesn’t work is just as bad as not having one at all...if not worse because it offers you a false sense of security.

  • Suppression Systems

    The Top 5 Things You Should Know About The Test & Inspection of Suppression Systems

    Fire suppression systems are critical to the safety of staff and visitors to your facility. You know also that your suppression systems must be tested and inspected.

  • When You Change Your Clocks, Update Your Smoke Detectors

    With daylight savings time just around the corner, it’s time to think about other ways to prepare for a new season, and that includes checking in on your household fire safety system. When you set back your clocks this season, it is a good idea to take a look at your smoke detectors and ensure they have fresh batteries and are in good working order.

  • Why You Can’t Afford to Overlook a Fire Protection System

    Having a fire protection system in your home or office building is one of the most important investments you will ever make, and is a safety addition you cannot afford to overlook. Recent studies found that more than 60% of all home fire deaths in the United States came as a result of not having a smoke alarm, or in homes that had one but it was not in proper working order. Don’t allow you or your loved ones to become a part of this terrible statistic by overlooking a fire protection system of your own.
