Fire protection is a serious matter for any business owner, but having the added responsibility of a large number of visitors or guests can really cause some headaches. There are people that — no matter the evidence to the contrary — believe that a fire alarm is always a test and refuse to leave their area or even hide out in a bathroom. Business owners are required to step in to ensure that everyone gets out of the premises safely and to minimize the damage to their property as much as possible. Managing the two directives at the same time takes skill, preparation and having a solid plan in place or you risk disaster. See how these fire protection recommendations for hotels and restaurants can provide peace of mind to business owners and managers.
