Keeping Your Business Safe From Fires

March 7th, 2019

There are some things that nobody can plan for. And when it comes to owning and operating a business, one of those things is certainly an accident or serious event such as a fire. A workplace fire can be a huge issue, and making sure that your business and your employees are safe during an emergency of this time is important. As such, it’s important that you take the time to put forth effort into keeping it safe no matter what.

Steps For Better Safety

There’s no way to know what the future holds. Fires aren’t something that anyone ever dreams will happen to their business, but they are for sure something that needs to be considered and that should be prepared for. There are several measures you can take to prevent fires and to deal with them if they occur. Here are some of the main things you’ll need to do.

  • Install smoke detectors in every room of your business. Each year, replace their batteries. If they’re hardwired into the building, test each of them to make sure they are still working.
  • Invest in fire extinguishers and place them throughout your facility. Ensure that all employees know where these fire extinguishers are located.
  • Create a plan for the event of a fire. You may have employees who have different tasks, several different exit routes, and more. The key is to create a plan that keeps your employees completely safe while mitigating risk to your business as a whole
  • Use fire drills regularly to help keep the process you’ve set up fresh in the minds of your employees. This ensures that they are able to complete the steps needed and that your business is fully protected – and that your employees are safe.
  • Use remote fire alarm monitoring to keep an eye on your company no matter where you are or what you may be doing.

Is Commercial Fire Monitoring Worth It? 

It may seem like commercial fire monitoring is an expense you can avoid. But you should think of it like an investment into an additional layer of insurance. You hope that you’ll never need it but will be incredibly glad to have it when the unthinkable happens.

Fire monitoring is easy to set up and can be linked to your existing security system or a new one to ensure that you have maximum protection and that you are able to ensure that your business is fully protected and safe, even when you aren’t on the site to keep an eye on things.

Give Yourself Peace Of Mind 

It’s important for anyone that owns or operates a business in the Houston area to take the time to protect their business and their employees. We can’t always foresee the future, but with proper planning we can ensure that we’re protected. Making sure your business is safe from fire hazards not only protects your future, but gives you peace of mind that you can rest easy knowing that things will be safe no matter what the universe throws your way. 

"Steve I just wanted to thank you and your partner Ray Kindsfather for the fine work you men did installing the security cameras around my home. The quality of the pictures is excellent, the clarity in day or infrared mode is exactly what I was looking for. What good is a camera if you can't identify the person and these cameras will greatly assist the police in identifying a perpetrator. The computer side of the job is easy and fast with very little adjustment time for me in finding what I want to see. Software and hardware get A+++++ no doubt about. The Ring is equally easy to use and the quality of the camera is equally strong. The installation was clean and fast. You maintain a clean site, it’s like you were never here. You answered all my questions with pin point accuracy. Integrity suits you well. Your answers were honest and to the point. Refreshing in today’s world. All and all you and Ray make a strong team at DWS Technology LLC. I have no problem recommending you to friend or family, home or business. God bless you both with your business. I will call you for future installations. "

"Ray, in reviewing several different security cameras there were many good products, but none met my criteria of clarity and no long-term contract. Raymond, you showed me one product that caught my attention with the clarity and distance viewing that I could not get with other systems. The zoom after a few feet became distorted with the other systems but with the Alibi NVR package you demoed, we could zoom in and out with clarity which made this product stand out from all the rest. The NVR system is so simple, in fact, anyone can configure the system to suit their needs. You can monitor your home from your smartphone or tablet and having security cameras makes it a great deterrent for criminal activity. DWS Technology delivered as promised! Your installation crew worked clean and treated my home as if it was their own. Great attention to detail! I will recommend DWS Technology to anyone! Great job guys!"
