Often times, the fire chief can order the property owner to hire a fire station, which is important for the safety of a place. There can be numerous reasons for this, for example that the property is used to store flammable chemicals or that people work with open flames inside the structure, for example with welding equipment. Regardless of the reason, once you order, you will need to hire some fire stations or even multiple guards. However, there is an alternative.
It is important to understand why the firefighter may have ordered a fire station. You can start by asking them, and if they say something about your sprinklers not working, you can alternatively have them repaired rather than renting one. , we advocate that companies hire fire watch guards. If you have one, you can add an extra level of fire protection to your business.
Next, let’s look at an alternative to using a fire station appointed by the fire department.
Installing Fire Alarms and Sprinklers
One of the reasons the fire department may recommend a fire station is because fire alarms and sprinklers are not working or not present. It has fire alarms and sprinklers; however, these systems may not be present in buildings under construction or renovation, in which case it is necessary to hire a security guard to monitor the fire.
If your building is not under construction or undergoing renovation, we highly recommend checking all fire alarms and sprinklers to fix those that are not working. Then ask the fire brigade to perform the audit again. If there is anything that can help, remove the recommendation or request.
A Fire Watch Guard Pays Off
Many business owners and property managers consider hiring fire watch guards to be an added expense, especially if their sprinklers are working. But hiring them could potentially save you millions in fire damage, the extra cost definitely seems worth it.
It would be helpful if you also keep in mind that fire alarms and sprinklers only activate in the event of a fire. On the flip side, a fire guard can help prevent big hells by putting out small fires before the smoke even reaches the alarm, which is well worth it.
While there is always a way to avoid hiring a fire station, it is worth having one on board. In fact, we go so far as to say that having a fire monitor in your building gives you the peace of mind that you won’t suddenly have to face the financial stress of a fire that damages your property and potentially injures people inside the building.
