Fire safety is of primary importance for all homes, offices and industrial sites. Fortunately, many products exist that can help prevent fires or keep them from spreading. Here are three essential fire safety products for your home or business.
- Fire Sprinkler Systems
Sprinkler systems are a good way to contain a fire and help prevent its spread before the arrival of the fire department. They are an especially important product to have if you are away from home often or if your business has machinery that poses a fire risk while the business is closed. Most people will need the help of professionals for the installation of fire sprinklers California.
- Smoke Alarms
Smoke or fire alarms are often the first line of defense for alerting people to a fire or potential fire. These alarms not only wake people up if they are sleeping, but can even detect invisible combustion gases in the air. It is highly advised, and required in new homes, for smoke alarms to be interconnected so that if one goes off, all of the alarms in the house go off. Use the test button on your smoke alarm at least once a month to make sure it is in good operating condition, and change the batteries in battery-powered alarms at least once a year.
- Fire Extinguishers
Fire extinguishers can be a good option for putting out smaller, more localized fires that may not necessarily set off the sprinkler system. Extinguishers come in a combination of A, B, or C ratings depending on the type of fire they are designed to put out. When using a fire extinguisher, keep in mind that most will only last for eight seconds.
These three products are just the beginning of the many products you can purchase to ensure fire safety in your home or business.
