As a business owner or manager, your greatest responsibility is to protect the safety of your employees. This makes it essential to develop a fire safety plan that includes:
Your first order of business should be to find at least two routes for escaping your building. You need more than one in case the fire blocks one of them. Once you’ve found these routes, hold regularly drills where your employees can practice using them.
Once you escape a burning building, you need to determine how many people made it out and tell the fire department to look for anyone who didn’t. The easiest way to do this is by designating a meeting place for everyone who escapes. You’ll then know to look for anyone who doesn’t arrive.
Even after the fire is out, a burned building is still dangerous. It is important to find a professional recovery service with the skills to clean up smoke damage, eliminate structural problems, and make sure the air is clear.

I really appreciate the fact that they came to my rescue on a holiday weekend. I spoke with Kim Bowman and within 2 hours his his crew was on-site. I thought that was remarkable to have that quick of a response time!
