FAQs About Fire Safety for Property Managers
Is it enough for a smoke detector and fire extinguisher in each unit of an apartment building?
Apartment buildings are connected by multiple living space units, hallways, common areas, and lobbies. If a fire starts in one unit, it can easily spread throughout the property. Because of this, you need more than just the basics. You should have equipment that notifies you when the fire starts, keeps the fire from spreading, alerts all the residents to the emergency, and helps them evacuate quickly and safely.
What do building codes require in my area?
Building codes will vary by location, so the fire safety requirements for a building in Maryland may be different than for one in Virginia. The team at Guardian Fire Protection is knowledgeable and up to date on all building code requirements in every area we service, so you can rest assured we’ll make sure your building is up to code.
