Getting your team to safety in the event of an emergency is your primary concern when it comes to a disaster at the workplace. Perhaps one of the greatest natural dangers present in the modern workplace, whether in the office suite, factory floor, or warehousing area is fire. As such, companies are seeking out help from their local security system company for help regarding security concerns including fire alarm systems. Advances in technology have transformed the approaches businesses can take to protect your people and property.
Let us look at these technological transformations whilst shelving memories of our elementary school fire drills. Indeed, modern fire alarm systems are far more than a clanging bell and hastily arranged exit from the building.
Beyond Fire Alarms: Industrial Signaling and Institutional Communications
As indicated above, the traditional institutional defense against fire, as remembered from childhood, was upon hearing the bell, the teachers would quickly assemble the students along the wall as a quick count was made. Once the teacher ascertained that all her charges were accounted for, the teacher led the assembled pack out of the building by a pre-arranged exit plan. Once outside, the group would continue to a predetermined rally point whereupon another count will be conducted.
The quickest of perusals of this past paragraph raises some immediate red flags. Not least of all, fire rarely respects established, emergency exit plans, nor is the hurried accounting by a harried teacher the best way to keep track of errant children.
Today, modern technology has elevated the safety protocols of institutions both big and small. As such, for business owners from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to Ohio’s teeming lakefront industries looking to find scalable solutions to protect their team members and property. From fire detection to effective signaling that alerts not only those at risk on site, but also offers an institutional communication that quickly moves up and down the chain of command of the business, school, or hospital.
One size does not fit all when it comes to establishing and installing fire alarm systems, so raising your concerns with a security system company that is experienced in the latest technology is a critical component of your fire safety plan.
