It’s never too early in the year to start thinking about wildfire prevention planning, and it’s never a bad idea to be thinking about how your business can be at the forefront of wildfire prevention—even if you’re located in an urban area. With the wildfire season starting earlier almost every year recently, it’s important to understand the role you play as a business owner in keeping your community safe year after year. Wildfire prevention planning and services like those from Capstone Fire can help your business succeed as a gold standard in wildfire prevention. Here are several ways that those services can help you get ahead this wildfire season.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is responsible for setting the standards that US businesses have to abide by in terms of keeping their employees, customers, and local community safe and risk-free. While OSHA may not deal directly with wildfires, its standards can help business owners prevent wildfires from breaking out in their area—particularly in places like California where the risk of a wildfire breaking out are significantly higher in residential and business areas than in other parts of the country.
Capstone fire offers services to train your employees on how to best handle fire prevention. The service includes training on how to best prevent a fire, as well as tips and best practices or suggestions to implement in the workplace to make it as safe as possible. Often, fires are started because of one simple and avoidable issue that could have been prevented with proper wildfire prevention and planning services, so it’s our mission to make those services as accessible as possible to our community.
Proper fire protection and prevention
Preventing fires from breaking out begins with your own day to day habits. Often, fires begin due to human error and are entirely preventable with proper prevention. Understand that there are many suggestions and advice that you can follow, like assuring that the vents in your business are never blocked, for example, that will prevent fires from happening in the first place. Do things like remove dry brush and dead plants from your property, clean vents regularly, and avoid letting any trees or shrubs grow too close to electrical wires. These are just a few of the many tips that we have in preventing fires, and are simple enough yet extremely important in preventing fires from happening near you.
