Important Data Regarding Workplace Fires

As statistics inform us, most fires occur at home. That’s not really a surprise, right?  However, the next place fires most frequently occur is at the workplace. Neither of these statistics should shock us: more human activity, more chance for human error.  While it’s true that no one ever really thinks that a fire will be a part of their workday, being informed of some of the deeper details of workplace fires can actually help prevent them. 

How Does a Fire Actually Start?

If you’ve ever experienced a fire, you know first-hand what a terrifying experience that is. But how did that fire event start? While the catalysts for fires can be many different things, a few elements need to be in place for that fire to turn into a blaze. It may seem like extra information you may or may not be interested in knowing, but understanding how a fire works and grows can add an extra bit of equipment for your fire prevention arsenal.

Fire Statistics Make Their Case for Fire Safety

When recent fires show up in the news or on our social media feeds, the details we’re given are somewhat generic: “A fire broke out at Building A. The building sustained some damages and X number of people were injured.” Usually, we don’t hear the specifics about the fires, so we don’t really see the big picture of the impact that fires have across our nation. Fortunately, we don’t see major fires every day, thanks to the prevalence of fire prevention measures (including flameproofing) and fire safety education. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at some actual numbers and statistics that paint a more accurate picture of the fire situation in America.

It Takes a Village - and You Can Play a Part in Community Risk Reduction

In our last post, we discussed the village approach to community safety - how everyone in the community has a role to play in preventing fires and responding to emergencies - firefighters, business owners, first responders, and even the general public. Today we are going to share with you a special opportunity that's available through the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), where community members are encouraged to get involved through a Community Risk Reduction (CRR) pilot program.

The Village Approach to Fire Safety in Public

We all know how important it is for everyone to work together in order for things to get done. It takes a whole village for a community to be safe. When we are talking about fire protection and prevention, everyone has a part to play. Firefighters must be prepared to do their job, business owners must make sure their locations are safe for the public, and even we at Certified Flameproofing must be up to the task of protecting our communities. However, the general public also can play an important part in the village approach to fire safety.
