Healthcare Fire Safety
When it comes to hospitals, healthcare facilities and nursing homes, the term “life safety and property protection” takes on a whole new meaning. Healthcare fire safety requires early detection and strategic evacuation plans in the event of a fire. For critical patients, though, evacuation is not a viable option, so hospitals must work very closely with fire protection experts like Valley Fire to anticipate every scenario before it happens.
As healthcare facilities have become more sophisticated, their reliance upon computer systems, data storage and complex diagnostic equipment has made property protection a more difficult task. Specialized fire suppression systems designed to protect this equipment are needed. Once the fire systems in medical buildings are evaluated and the deficiencies documented, we can outline cost-effective improvement plans that are tailored to the needs of each facility.
Valley Fire Protection specializes in the routine maintenance and repair of all fire protection equipment, from wet and dry sprinklers to fire pumps and jockey pumps. Each component plays a critical role in fire prevention and protection.
Valley Fire adheres to all guidelines set forth by insurance carriers and governmental agencies including NFPA, IDPH, EPA and your authority having jurisdiction (AHJ).
