Fire safety is a concern that many still take lightly, yet the effects of a fire in either a commercial or domestic property can be devastating. A major fire in a business premises can result in both the loss of lives and result in the business having to cease operations. Taking fire safety seriously and ensuring that your building is protected to the highest standards can prevent unnecessary devastation. Statistics released by the government suggest nearly three quarters of businesses that are involved in a major fire incident never reopen again, or cease to exist within three years. This highlights the importance for advanced fire safety precautions in a business setting.
