As some businesses are being told by the Australian Federal Government to close, I thought I would give as much information about Fire Safety.
The quote from Scott Morrison was “the need to maintain essential services as the nation locks down certain facilities to minimise the spread of COVID19”.
We at Essential Safety Protection urge building owners and facility managers to;-
Maintaining fire systems is a critical life safety activity that safeguards buildings and protects property by reducing the likelihood of a major fire event from occurring.
FIRE EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE IS AN ESSENTIAL SERVICE THAT MUST CONTINUE REGARDLESS OF THE PANDEMIC.
Extensive experience has shown that in times of reduced activity from normal operating patterns that the Fire Risk Is Hightened. As there is not the human sensing of smoke and fire that would normally add to the fire protection systems.
Please be assured that our company can still maintain fire systems as per Australian standard while taking appropriate steps and use of PPE to prevent any further spread of the COVID19 virus.
