Choosing the Best Fire Protection Company for Your Business
When you’re looking for a fire protection company for your business, you need to know that the organization you select has the experience that you need and the history in your area that you can trust. Here are a few of the questions that you can ask potential partners as you’re searching for a new fire protection company.
1. Do you have experience working with my type of business?
Some fire protection companies focus on working with specific business types such as restaurants, hospitals, industrial facilities or marinas. There are special considerations for each of these business types — restaurants and hospitals have a higher risk of quick-moving fires from grease, for instance. Marine-based businesses may not have the same level of access to fresh water and may need a more creative approach to fire suppression.
2. How quickly does your team respond in the event of an emergency?
Seconds matter when lives are on the line, and our team responds to your urgent requests in minutes. A major fire could quickly wipe out your business. At AAA Fire Protection, we respect your time and do our best to provide superior and personalized customer service at all times. You don’t want to waste valuable time familiarizing the person who answers the phone with your needs — whoever you speak with should have your details at their fingertips and be ready to start helping you immediately.
3. Are your professionals licensed?
Requirements for fire protection change on a regular basis, and ongoing licensing or certification is one of the best ways to ensure that your professional partners are up-to-date with the latest advances in technology. Your partner should be conversant with both state and local fire codes and building codes and able to apply that knowledge to your business quickly and efficiently.
4. Who will be analyzing my business?
You don’t want to take a chance on having your business in the hands of an amateur, especially when it comes to reviewing your current fire protection and making recommendations for any changes or updates. Always request information about the experience of the individual who will be analyzing your business and don’t hesitate to ask questions if you have them. A reputable fire protection partner will have no problem answering your tough questions.
5. Do you offer regular reviews of my fire protection solutions?
Annual reviews of your fire protection systems are a crucial part of any strategy. You might be surprised how much a building could degrade in a single year, but the changes may not be visible to the naked eye unless you are looking for specific issues. That extra set of eyes who fully understands the standards that you need to meet to maintain a secure workplace is a crucial part of your ongoing fire protection.
