Consider a Fire Alarm Inspection Before Your Residents Gather Loved Ones for Thanksgiving
Residential fires around the holidays are an unfortunate reminder of the importance of fire alarms in multi-dwelling buildings, says fire protection company Global Fire Technologies, Inc.
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The biggest cause of residential fires is home cooking. This makes the holiday season–and especially Thanksgiving–one of the most dangerous days in terms of residential fires. In fact, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) claims that Thanksgiving involves three times as many home cooking fires as any other day of the year. Before these accidents happen, fire protection company in Los Angeles Global Fire Technologies, Inc. recommends that residential property owners and managers make sure their fire alarm systems and automatic sprinkler systems are in tip-top operating condition so that these outbreaks are sufficiently contained.
Annual fire alarm inspection, in addition to being legally mandated, helps remove the human error element from home cooking accidents. While entertaining, chefs might walk away from the stove or forget to roll up their sleeves when cooking. Plus, an additional demand placed on ill-equipped kitchen equipment could lead to a disaster in an apartment. These fires, though caused by only one resident, can quickly spread throughout an apartment complex, townhome, or condominium. A test of your building’s sprinkler system or fire alarm in Los Angeles from Global Fire Technologies, Inc. can help stop all of these disasters from getting worse.
Fires caused by home cooking might be impossible to ever fully prevent, but their impact can be minimized–allowing the holidays to be unmarred from a personal and upsetting tragedy. Most importantly, fire alarms and sprinkler systems save the lives of those nearest to the fires, but they can also help prevent an outbreak from affecting neighboring homes. This spread of fire can be costly for the owner of a multi-family residence in addition to affecting income during the reconstruction process. If there’s an additional system that you’d like installed for your residential complex, such as a central station monitoring alarm, that can also be arranged through Global Fire Technologies, Inc.
