You know what we love? Things not burning. We may be all about fire at our company, but ultimately we’re all about avoiding that fire. Anyone in protection services will tell you the best way to stay safe in a dangerous situation is to avoid being in a dangerous situation in the first place. When it comes to proactive fire safety this usually means knowing what fire hazards currently exist around you before learning how to combat them. That’s because there are different protective, preventive, and proactive measures to take depending on the fire. If your building is more likely to experience an oil fire from the kitchen, you don’t want a fire system that only dispenses water, which would make the fire grow instead of die out. Read our blog to learn about different types of fires, different safety classifications, and protection methods.
