When we hear about fires, we mostly hear about them in somewhat general terms: "There was a fire at so-and-so building and some property was damaged and some people sustained injuries."  But we typically don't hear about the numbers that tell the true story of the impact that fires have. Thankfully, severe fires aren't that occur every day, largely in part to fire prevention measures and education, including flameproofing practices that are performed by companies like Manhattan Flameproofing. Today, however, we're going to be talking about some specific statistics relating to the extensiveness of fires in our country today.

There’s absolutely nothing like the theater industry in New York City. World-renowned for its performances and architecture, theaters remain an enormous tourist attraction and source of revenue for theater owners. Because of the high level of traffic that goes through these buildings every year, it’s of great importance that they are protected to the highest degree from the threat of fire. Theater owners have a great responsibility to make sure that they’ve done their due diligence in protecting their theater from the possibility of a fire breaking out. Today,  we will be discussing just how they can do that.

 

As we are going about our day from place to place, most of us aren’t really thinking about how safe these places are. We sort of assume that the stores, subways, office buildings, and restaurants are up to the legally required standards and are safe for us to enter. This also can apply when we travel as well - we are trusting that the management of hotels, airports, etc. has seen to all the safety requirements. But when we are talking about hotels specifically, while this hasn’t always been the case (The Winecoff Hotel fire in Atlanta is one example), there are certain specifications that hotels are required to follow if they’re to be considered safe and operational.
