Fire Prevention

Case studies of office fires show that most fires could have been prevented if simple safety precautions had been exercised. You can help prevent fires by following these precautions:

  1. Assign someone to make certain that all appliances are turned off at the end of the day.
  2. Be alert for strange odors. The building does NOT utilize any natural gas.
  3. Sparks from electrical appliances should be checked immediately for malfunction.
  4. Don’t overload wall circuits.
  5. Dispose of trash... don’t allow it to accumulate.
  6. Smoke only where permitted.
  7. Avoid using extension cords. Never cover a cord with carpet or a chair mat and unplug them when not in use.
