SERVPRO of Southbury/Torrington Restores Commercial Properties After Fire
Southbury businesses can not afford to have their doors closed for a lengthy period of time due to fire damage.
As a business owner, examining your risk and taking preventative measures as well as educating your employees on procedures can help reduce the damage to your facility.
Assess the risk that fire hazards may pose to your business. The National Fire Protection Association offers handbooks and other publications on the fire safety code in place for businesses. You can also call your local Connecticut fire department and ask the fire marshal if they are available to make a visit and identify any risks.
Maintain your sprinkler system. An automatic sprinkler system will dramatically reduce the spread of a fire in your business as well as keep your employees and customers safe. Have your system properly maintained and inspected so that it works when you need it!
Check your smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. Standard fire safety practices call for smoke detectors and fire extinguishers on every floor. Your best bet is multipurpose extinguishers, which will douse most small fires with ease, without shorting out your electronics.
Educate your employees. Make sure all employees are aware of your fire safety plan by conducting a yearly fire drill and educating new employees. Training in how to use fire extinguishers should also be conducted.
A fire at your Torrington, CT business can be devastating and even force the closure of your business.
