Today’s Technology Offers Quicker Detection and Rapid Response
A building fire is something we rarely expect. Unfortunately, when it does occur, it can cause significant damage and loss, spreading through a building in a matter of minutes. According to the National Fire Protection Association, the most common causes of fires in office buildings include electrical and lighting equipment, heating equipment, cooking equipment, intentional arson, and smoking materials.
Intentionally set fires cause the most extensive property damage, followed by electrical distribution and lighting equipment. Recently, as you probably recall, a home in Katy, TX, went up in flames due to a severe storm and lightning strike.
Fortunately, you can take steps to prepare for these unexpected events. A fire detection system gives employees and clients the time to react and get to safety while minimizing damages. Let’s explore how these commercial systems work.
