FEMA reports that an estimated 14,000 fires occur annually in school facilities, ranging from day care centers to universities. Structure fires in educational facilities can be costly and dangerous. Fire protection for educational facilities is vital. Choosing a fire protection company you can trust to protect students and staff is a critical decision. While there are many fire protection companies, only Fire Systems, Inc. brings expert knowledge and decades of experience providing fire protection services to educational facilities.
Extensive knowledge of the unique challenges of educational facilities
Educational facilities face unique challenges when it comes to fire safety and prevention. Unlike other industries, the leading cause of fire in educational facilities is arson, with most fires beginning in bathrooms or locker rooms.
Automatic suppression systems limit the damaging impacts of fire. NFPA reports that of the educational facility fires reported from 2011-2014, 92 percent of fires with sprinkler systems were confined to the room of origin.
Knowing and understanding the specific needs of clients within the educational sector makes Fire Systems, Inc. a leader in the fire protection industry.
Accommodating of scheduling needs
Most educational facilities seek to minimize disruptions during the school day and avoid having technicians in the building during school hours. However, it’s important to stay up to date on annual inspections and required maintenance of fire protection systems.
Fire Systems, Inc. understands that learning should always come first. Schools can schedule fire system inspections, repairs, and installations during holidays, weekends, early mornings, and late afternoons. We’re always available via phone or email to answer any questions and will work our hardest to schedule jobs within days, not weeks.
Experience working with different types of clients in the Education sector
From preschools to private academies, there are varying needs and requirements for fire protection for educational facilities. For example, while the leading cause of fire in K-12 facilities is arson, the leading cause of fire in college dormitories is cooking.
Fire protection needs of educational facilities can vary based on factors like type of construction or number of students in the building. Requirements for fire protection also vary by county, city, or jurisdiction.
