HEALTH AND SAFETY
Fire Safety is at the Heart of Preparation
Buildings should be designed, constructed and maintained to a high
standard of fire safety. This way, if a fire occurs, it can be contained or
controlled as far as possible. Fire escape arrangements and fire service
installations and procedures are intended to ensure that evacuation
can be successfully achieved in the unlikely event of a major fire.
Fire Sprinkler
A fire sprinkler discharges
water when a predetermined
temperature has been exceeded.
AED
AED is an effective treatment
for restoring a regular heart
rhythm during sudden
cardiac arrest.
Smoke Curtain
During a fire, smoke curtains
prevent the movement of
smoke and heat from one
area to another by channeling
or containing it.
Fire Shutter
The Fire Shutter closes
automatically when
activated to prevent
a fire from spreading
into adjacent areas.
Fire Door
Fire doors are self-closing, and
they are constructed to resist
fire and prevent smoke from
getting into the staircases.
