Fire Incidents Involving Upholstered Furniture

One of the more fun aspects of starting a business is the decorating and design of the office space.  The aesthetic appeal of a business office or location cannot be underestimated, especially when it comes to first impressions for customers.  Often, customers will give their business to a place that gives of a certain, unidentifiable vibe, and that usually comes from the decor. However, decorations can cause a major fire risk if the proper precautions aren’t taken, including flameproofing. In fact, upholstered furniture is often a significant fire hazard that most people don’t think about. Today’s post will discuss the upholstered furniture and fire incidents.

Important Data Regarding Workplace Fires

As statistics inform us, most fires occur at home. That’s not really a surprise, right?  However, the next place fires most frequently occur is at the workplace. Neither of these statistics should shock us: more human activity, more chance for human error.  While it’s true that no one ever really thinks that a fire will be a part of their workday, being informed of some of the deeper details of workplace fires can actually help prevent them. 

How Does a Fire Actually Start?

If you’ve ever experienced a fire, you know first-hand what a terrifying experience that is. But how did that fire event start? While the catalysts for fires can be many different things, a few elements need to be in place for that fire to turn into a blaze. It may seem like extra information you may or may not be interested in knowing, but understanding how a fire works and grows can add an extra bit of equipment for your fire prevention arsenal.

Fire Statistics Make Their Case for Fire Safety

When recent fires show up in the news or on our social media feeds, the details we’re given are somewhat generic: “A fire broke out at Building A. The building sustained some damages and X number of people were injured.” Usually, we don’t hear the specifics about the fires, so we don’t really see the big picture of the impact that fires have across our nation. Fortunately, we don’t see major fires every day, thanks to the prevalence of fire prevention measures (including flameproofing) and fire safety education. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at some actual numbers and statistics that paint a more accurate picture of the fire situation in America.

It Takes a Village - and You Can Play a Part in Community Risk Reduction

In our last post, we discussed the village approach to community safety - how everyone in the community has a role to play in preventing fires and responding to emergencies - firefighters, business owners, first responders, and even the general public. Today we are going to share with you a special opportunity that's available through the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), where community members are encouraged to get involved through a Community Risk Reduction (CRR) pilot program.
