Protecting Your Property Investments with Fire Extinguishers
Fire incidents in high-rise apartment buildings all over the world have garnered attention on the issue of fire safety. How safe are these buildings? Fire safety in high-rise apartment buildings has its own challenges because of the building’s design, for example, a longer time is needed to evacuate as there will be a great number of people going through the staircase during evacuation. There isn’t a need to panic. High-rise buildings are now subject to a stricter safety code. In fact, in Canada, there is a legislation requiring all multi-unit dwellings to be inspected on an annual basis. Also most of these high-rise buildings are built to be fire proofed; its design made in such a way that the spread of fire will be limited, so if a fire breaks out, it will be confined to a specific location.
