According to the National Fire Protection Association, in a recent year U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated 1,451,500 fires and they resulted in 3,320 fatalities, 16,705 injuries and an estimated $15,478,000,000 in direct property loss. Fire Extinguishers: Your PASS to Safety will ensure your staff knows when to call the fire department and when to fight a fire; should they stay and combat the flames themselves, this training will provide the know-how to operate a fire extinguisher properly.
In general, when employees are at work they might think a fire could never happen to them let alone in their office. Think again. Of the fires in the NFPA reports, 112,000 were responded to in commercial or municipal buildings. Of the over $15 Billion in property damage, more than $3.811 Billion took place in these non-residential structures. This represents an average loss per reported incident in non-residential and commercial structures of over $34,000.
These facts, pure and simple, don’t tell the story of the true value of fire extinguishers to our society. Help your employees put out fires in their infancy, saving lives and protecting property, with Fire Extinguishers: Your PASS to Safety.
