Fire Protection Services for Health Care Facilities and Hospitals throughout Southeast Michigan
About 6,000 fires in medical facilities every year cause around 25 injuries and five deaths every 12 months. Establishing a fire safety system in a health care facility is no easy task, though. Unlike schools and malls, hospital residents are often disabled or ill, so extra vigilance is required. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has created a set of criteria to account for fire risks to patients, visitors, and staff, so it’s a good place to start.
It’s far easier and more reliable to work with a company with the expertise you need to develop your protocols, though, and that’s where Fire Systems of Michigan steps in. We’re a one-stop shop for all your fire protection needs. We install, repair, and inspect every part of your system, from your sprinklers and extinguishers to your exit and emergency lighting.
