Importance of Fire Prevention    

In a fire, mere seconds can mean the difference between a safe escape and a tragedy. Fire safety education isn’t just for school children. Teenagers, adults, and the elderly are also at risk in fires, making it important for every member of the community to take some time to make sure they understand how to stay safe in case of a fire.

Awareness is key. Everyone can help to prevent arson at construction sites.

Contractors

Store solvents, fuels and tools in a locked storage container or remove them from the job site when you are not using them.
