Test Fire Protection Equipment
It's important for your team to do what they can to prevent building fires, but don't forget about your responsibilities too. One of the most important precautions for property and facility managers and owners is testing the fire protection equipment. You might have the proper fire sprinkler systems, fire extinguishers, smoke, and carbon monoxide detectors installed, but that doesn't mean they will work in the event of an emergency. These fire systems must be regularly tested and inspected.
Fire Sprinkler Systems
In the winter, it's especially important to check in on the fire sprinkler system because the pipes are at risk of freezing. This could cost you thousands in damage, and even worse, your system might not work if there is a fire.
Make sure you're checking fire extinguishers every 30 days to ensure that the gauge is pointing to the green area.
In a fire, every second counts. Smoke alarms should be installed in every room, hallway, and on every level of the building. Proper testing of fire alarm systems can save dollars and lives.
These simple tips can help keep your buildings and properties safe. But disasters will happen, so be prepared and call Cousino Medical Services!
Before the harshness of winter hits, here are a few tips to prepare for the worst. A little preparation can help you get through winter with as little damage or wear and tear as possible.
You will want to maintain your indoor temperatures in order for your equipment and employees to function optimally. If you do your own maintenance, now is the time to look for worn or damaged parts and clean out accumulated dust or dirt. If you use a service, schedule a cleaning. If you have generators, make sure they’re operational and ready to take over if needed.
For any machines that need to operate outside in the cold:
Check your parking lot and look for any damage that will be exacerbated due to ice and snow and have it repaired now. Check your trees and take down any broken or cracked branches, as those are likely to cause trouble should you get a snow or ice storm. Look for branches that may have grown over power lines and trim them back. Once winter sets in, this kind of work can be difficult to do.
