At Guardian Fire Protection, we talk a lot about the importance of fire alarm maintenance. After all, when it comes to protecting life and property, your fire alarm is one of the most important things you can have installed in your building. But what exactly is involved in “proper fire alarm maintenance?”
It’s that time of year again: trees in the shop windows, electric candles all around, and of course, furnaces, fireplaces, space heaters and all manner of potentially flammable devices. It’s around this time many fire departments around your area will be hosting a variety of demonstrations to remind people they need to take extra precautions this holiday season. Every year, an average of 210 residential and commercial fires are caused by holiday trees. If you’re planning on putting up a tree to celebrate the holidays in your Maryland, Virginia or Washington, DC building, follow these tips to make sure your holiday cheer doesn’t turn your business to coal!
