- Fire Safety Inspections
- Fire Safety Plans

Fire Safety Inspections
Fire safety inspections should be conducted by a specially trained technician who can conduct a thorough examination of all aspects of your fire safety program, to make sure that in the event of an emergency, you and everyone else are prepared and safe. These inspections can look for problems or areas of concern in your fire response program and suggest ways to better prepare.
Fire Safety Plan
One suggestion your fire safety inspection might have is to make sure you have a clear, and efficient fire safety plan. This should be a planned document that addresses the safety of all occupants within the building. A fire safety plan is quite extensive, and a requirement for every building to have and maintain.
Fire Equipment Inspections
Another important aspect of a fire safety inspection is to ensure that all fire equipment is inspected and determined to be in working order. This includes:
fire hydrants; and
You may also have other fire equipment that should be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure it is ready should the unthinkable happen.
The best response to any emergency is to be vigilant and prepared. By having regular fire safety inspections conducted, you can be sure that should a fire happen, you and everyone else will be prepared and get out safe.
