Types of Fire Fighting Equipment

If unprepared, fire can pose a significant threat to the well-being of employees and clients in the workplace. There are numerous reasons why a fire may occur within a facility. These include the ignition of flammable materials, problems with an electrical system, and human error. When a fire emergency is underway, human life and property are at great risk. That is why it is so important to have the proper firefighting equipment on hand if you own or run an organization. At Getz Fire Equipment, we offer fire detection and protection devices to help you protect life and property.

Mitigating Fire Threats

Fire protection equipment and systems are designed to keep people and property free from the danger and devastation of a fire. Some of the pieces of equipment used for this purpose include fire alarms, smoke detectors, fire suppression systems, and fire extinguishers. Both chemical and electrical fires are addressed with the use of these devices.

Fire Suppression

Fire equipment specialists and distributors have the capability to service and install fire prevention and mitigation systems such as fire alarms and sprinkler systems. An experienced company that offers fire equipment can provide you with important products and services related to kitchen exhaust cleaning and industrial fire suppression to help you maximize workplace safety.

Proper Installation and Maintenance

With correct installation and continuing maintenance of the fire equipment in your building you can ensure your fire protection system is continually up-to-date and operates effectively and reliably to provide the necessary protection for people and property.

In addition to the fire equipment mentioned above, an intercom system can also improve overall fire protection inside of a building. This type of system is used to warn building occupants of a fire and provide them with specific instructions to avoid the present danger.
