A Fire Escape Ladder You Can be Really Sure About
A fire escape ladder is something you might well not give a second thought to until, of course, the moment you have to use one. For pretty obvious reasons, ladders for fire escapes must be well made, durable, and regularly tested to ensure they provide a building’s occupants with a safe means of egress. Fire Protection Group, Inc. is here to offer a full range of services to ensure that your residential or business property is as safe as possible in terms of protection lives and property.
While prevention is always ideal, fire safety also consists of protecting lives by ensuring that occupants of a building are able to leave quickly, easily, and safely. That means you need clearly marked and accessible exits, as well as fire alarms to alert occupants that a fire is underway. Fire escape ladders are, of course, also necessary in certain types of multi-story buildings.
It’s also important to do whatever you can to stop the fire as quickly as possible. Fire extinguishers can obviously help to stop a small fire before it becomes a big one, but that’s only the beginning. Fire sprinkler systems can sometimes extinguish a larger fire or, failing that, can slow down the spread of a blaze until the fire department arrives. Standpipes can be hugely important for taller buildings, as they bring water to higher floors, allowing the firefighters easy access to water on the higher stories of a tall building.
