Fire accidents may occur at any time regardless of location, either office, home, or at public places. According to the National Fire Protection Association Fire Loss in the U.S, fires cause over 4,000 deaths each year in America.
This number is even more serious if we consider that these fires kill an average of 600 children ages 14 and under and injure approximately 47,000 more children. In commerce, approximately one third of all businesses do not recover from a serious fire.
A serious issue regarding fire safety is that most people think their facility is completely fire safe and a fire alarm system is not needed. But taking a deeper look into even the most careful person’s home/office surroundings might reveal potential fire hazards.
One of the most common causes of fires is the use of an extension cord in place of permanent wiring. Other common causes are combustible and hazardous materials (solvents, adhesives, chemicals, etc), heating appliances, vandalism, smoking, and children playing with fire.
A fire event in a house without a home fire alarm system can be devastating since fire spreads rapidly and it is crucial that it be controlled right after it starts. According to fire fighting professionals, it is very common to have children hide matches and lighters under their beds to “play” with fire when they are away from an adult. They don't understand what they are doing, but fires started in these areas are extremely hard to put out quickly. Considering that, having a home fire alarm system is important in any residence.
A fire event in a business facility, depending on the damage, can mean failure to the business. It can be even worse in a hospital, educational institution, or other highly populated facility.
It is not possible to control all potential fire hazards whether it is a residential or business facility. But Digital Security is always ready to respond promptly in case of an emergency to mitigate a devastating event. Our fire alarm system can detect when smoke density reaches a pre-determined limit, activating a fire sensor and warning the building / home occupants of an emergency condition.
At the same time, our Central Monitoring Station will receive the signal and will notify the designated personnel or family member and dispatch the appropriate fire department.
