  • 3 Things to Check to Prepare Your Fireplace & Chimney for Winter

    Relaxing in front of a fire on a cold night is one of the few true pleasures of winter.

  • 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.

  • 7 Simple Steps to Protecting Your Home From Kitchen Fires

    As the holidays approach, people are beginning to plan elaborate feasts for their friends and family. But did you know that nearly half of all home fires begin in the kitchen? On average that means about 180,000 fires a year causing roughly $7 BILLION in damages. Amazingly, fire safety and protection methods have current levels at roughly 40% of totals from just 30 years ago.

  • As Winter Approaches So Does the Increased Threat of Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning

    When the weather turns cold there are plenty of danger areas to monitor to keep your family warm and safe. Home fires occur most often in the winter months and without the proper life safety and fire protection systems your loved ones could be at risk. But one deadly threat stands out among the rest because it is completely invisible and can affect you without your knowledge, Carbon Monoxide (CO).

  • Back to School Fire Drills and Student Safety

    Most, if not all schools these days are equipped with serviced fire safety systems in place in case of an emergency. If it’s a new school, it was built in as part of the code requirements. But for some old schools, the fire safety systems may need attention, or may be regularly maintained and serviced. If you’re concerned, contact your school and school district to be informed about their fire safety equipment and policy.

  • Best Time to Install a Sprinkler System

    It’s never too late to install a sprinkler system for your residential, municipal, industrial or commercial, structure. Whether you’re planning a project and are seeking an estimate to implement with your design or you have a specific proposal in mind and are looking for pricing, it’s important to find a team with problem solving and project management skills and experience. Many times, fire code requirements become second-thought in the building process, so developing and evaluating a need for fire protection issues and code requirements early on will save time and be most cost-effective in the long run.

  • Campus Safety Tips to Prevent Fires During Winter Vacation

    With the holidays approaching, colleges and universities will be preparing for a very dangerous time of year. The mass exodus from dormitories leaves plenty of chances for fires to start in unoccupied rooms. Even though they are given explicit instructions, relying on students to take the proper fire safety prevention steps before leaving campus is foolish.

  • Fire Safety in the Digital World

    Fire safety equipment and inspections have come a long way in the past couple of years, let alone since The Great Chicago Fire. Fire fighters are using infrared cameras to identify and extinguish potential heat sources. Fire sprinkler systems are becoming more advanced as are the networks of safety devices whether they’re installed in the home, place of business, or in educational and government facilities. While technology for fighting and preventing fires is increasing, so is a way to inspect and maintain the equipment so they meet codes and do the job if the time comes.

  • 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.

  • Fire Sprinkler Code

    Fire sprinklers are becoming an increasingly popular form of fire safety and prevention. Legislation and code requirements have been slow to respond to the overbearing statistics regarding the effectiveness of residential fire sprinklers.

  • How to Lend a Hand When There’s a Fire Without Getting in the Way

    In case of an emergency, most people want to help. It’s an immediate reaction to lend a hand, to assist those in need, and to help everyone survive a situation. But sometimes good intentions can actually cause more harm than good. So how do you lend a hand if there is a fire without getting in the way of first-responders?

  • 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.

  • Servicing and Maintaining Fire Extinguishers is an Investment in Your Safety

    It goes without saying that it doesn’t matter how much fire safety equipment you have installed in your home or business to try and keep your family and employees safe, if it doesn’t function properly, you might as well not have any at all!
