The Devastating Results of Secondary Losses from Fires

The occurrence of a fire is always a tragic event on some level, whether major or minor.  Our knee-jerk reaction is to hold our breath and hope that there has been no loss of life. If we are fortunate enough to hear that there are no casualties, we exhale with relief. However, after a fire, there are other losses to consider - especially for a business owner. 

Fire Safety Laws in Relation to Flameproofing

The fun side of starting a business is the dreaming, the planning, and the creating.  The not-so-fun side is the logistics, the safety issues, and liability protection.  However, for any business to be successful, a business owner needs to consider and plan for both sides. When the issue of safety comes up, under that umbrella is fire safety.  And under that umbrella is flameproofing. In order for a business to fall within the scope of the law and be protected from legal liabilities should there ever be a fire, fireproofing a building is essential.

What You Can Expect from Us as Certified Flameproofers

In order to apply fire repellent and issue fire retardant certificates, we ourselves must have a Certificate of Fitness issued to us from the FDNY.  There are several standards that we as flameproofers need to uphold in order for us to have this certificate and be in good standing with the FDNY.
