Fire Protection Services for Warehouses
Preventing fires in your warehouse should be one of your top priorities. Disregarding the potential monetary losses for your business, the potential for loss of life is too great to ignore. During 2005-2009, an estimated 1,310 structure fires in warehouses were reported to U.S. fire departments each year, with associated annual losses of two civilian deaths, 22 civilian injuries and $162 million in direct property, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
Many of these fires took place in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi—is your warehouse or distribution facility protected?
The following factors contributed to structure fires in warehouses during the timespan (ranked in order of occurrences):
- Electric failure or malfunction
- Heat source too close to combustibles
- Cutting, welding too close to combustible
- Unclassified factor contributing to ignition
- Exposure fire
- Mechanical failure of malfunction
- Abandoned or discarded materials
It’s very important that your warehouse or distribution facility has fire sprinklers and fire extinguishers installed—the threat of fires in these types of facilities is very real.
Fire Sprinklers for Warehouses
Automatic fire sprinklers have been saving lives, protecting property and preserving vital business assets for more than a century. They are widely recognized as the single most effective method for preventing the spread of fires in early stages, often before they cause severe injury to people and massive damage to property.
Here at State Systems Inc., our expert technicians test, inspect, maintain and repair fire sprinkler systems in warehouse and distribution facilities throughout the Mid-South. We ensure that your sprinkler systems meet NFPA guidelines as well as local fire safety requirements.
Call us or contact us online if you have any questions about fire sprinkler systems.
Fire Extinguishers for Warehouses
Using a portable fire extinguisher during the first two minutes of a fire is arguably the most cost-effective defense against property damage from a fire. In the instance of small warehouse fires, employees can put out or at least contain a fire by using the proper equipment until the fire department arrives. Our expert technicians can help determine the right type, location and maintenance schedule for the fire extinguishers placed in your warehouse or distribution facility located near Memphis.
Extinguisher Installation & Training
Now, installing fire extinguishers in your warehouse facility is an important first step. Installing even the best fire extinguishers, however, is meaningless if your employees are not trained to use them. At State Systems Inc., we provide annual hands-on fire extinguisher training that complies with Occupational Health and Safety (OSHA) standards. Fire extinguisher training improves employee confidence and makes them more effective at fighting warehouse fires.
Training has been shown to increase fire extinguisher effectiveness by 250 percent! When your employees are properly trained, you can feel confident knowing you’ll save your company from valuable losses, insurance costs, accidental injury and accidental death.
Give us a call to learn more about the fire extinguishers we can install in your warehouse facility as well as the training services we provide.
