The Importance of Being Up to Local Fire Code StandardFire extinguishers, Fire Protection Systems,
It is imperative for all businesses to ensure that their facility is up to local fire code. If a business operates in a facility that is not up to code, it runs the risk of being penalized heavily and having to pay fines. What is a fire code? A fire code is a set of requirements for all buildings in an area, both commercial, and industrial.
These regulations are there to insure the safety of all occupants of the building at all time. Fire suppression, proper fire safety storage, emergency preparedness, the way hazardous and combustible materials are handled, the conduct of the business that may pose fire hazards, and the design, operation and maintenance of the building all fall under the umbrella of fire safety codes.
