While these instances can occur, there are processes and procedures that you can put in place that will help protect your operations, your employees and the long-term viability of your business. These steps will help you create a disaster recovery plan that will get you back in business quickly and without causing panic.

5 Steps You Can Take Today to Prevent Commercial Fires


Your business is incredibly important to you, and the thought of having a damaging commercial fire take it all away in a few moments can keep you up at night. According to the National Fire Protection Association, there were 113,000 non-residential fires reported in 2015 which caused 80 civilian deaths and over 1,400 civilian injuries. Direct damage alone accounted for over $1.3 billion dollars. The good news is that while frightening, the number of fires every year is down significantly from 1977, the first year that these statistics were tracked. In 1977 alone, there were a whopping 348,000 non-residential fires that resulted in 370 civilian deaths and 10 times that many injuries — not to mention $7.6 billion in direct damages (in 2015 dollars). This dramatic downturn in the damage caused and lives lost to fire can be attributed in large part to today’s advanced fire protection techniques. Here are 5 steps that you can take today to stop your business from becoming a fire statistic.
