So your building has fire protection systems in place, they’re installed, they’ve been tested, and everyone’s happy. 

Now what?

When you’re in charge of a commercial or residential building, fire protection management is the next step. It’s a vital part of making sure your building stays 100% fire safety compliant.

It’s important to make sure you are compliant, because a building that falls behind in its fire safety plan is an insurance liability, and could also be up for rather hefty council fines. 

So what’s the best way to make sure all the right fire system maintenance happens, on time, with all the correct paperwork?

I hate to break it to you, but depending on the size of building and types of tenancies, there’s quite a lot to be managed.

Different fire systems require checks at different intervals. Some systems need yearly checks, others six-monthly or even monthly. The kinds of checks vary for each type of equipment, and some items will need to be replaced after a certain number of years. 

Fire Protection Management for Different Safety Equipment

For instance, each of these equipment items needs different safety checks, done on a specific schedule:

  • Fire extinguishers 
  • Fire Hose Reels
  • Sprinkler systems
  • Exit doors and exit signs 
  • Fire detection and alarm systems 
  • Mechanical ventilation
  • Smoke control systems
  • Emergency lifts and lighting
  • Fire hydrants 
  • Smoke alarms
  • And more! 

There’s also system upgrades which can become necessary when laws change or council requires it. With all this included, proper fire protection management can keep a building manager busy for a long, long time. Unless…

Well, unless you get in a team of awesome professionals, who’ll take all of that off your plate, and manage it all in an easy to understand schedule, with all the paperwork neatly filed, and everything up to date.
