With the start of a new school year, we are all focusing on the safety of our children. As a parent of a 4-year-old, I believe that it’s important to teach our children at a young age about safety. As I’m sure that most parents feel the same way, safety of our children is our number one priority. I have been teaching my 4-year-old his address and phone number, how to call 911 and our family evacuation plan in case of a fire.
A building/business owner should consider customers and employees their children. It is the building/business owners number one priority to make sure that everyone is safe. A Fire Safety Plan is developed to ensure the highest level of safety for people as well as the property. Once a Fire Safety Plan has been developed, staff should be trained regularly to effectively manage situations safety and assist people out of dangerous situations. A Fire Safety Plan is also submitted to the Fire Department so that they are also familiar with the property and know pertinent details of the property in case of emergency. The training, education, and information that is contained in a fire safety plan provides essential fire safety measures for the fire department, employees, residents, customers, and the public. These components are essential to create a fire safe environment for the community.
