FIRE SAFETY FOR HEALTHCARE FACILITIES
‘FIRE’ – a seemingly harmless 4-letter word but in reality, fire has destroyed properties and investments worth hundreds of million dollars each year – a devastating loss to the industry and nation, which effects productivity and overall GNP. Most of all, fire has caused unnecessary loss of lives. Hence, fire safety is a crucial part of the building industry. Of all types of building occupancies, healthcare facilities are the most vulnerable as far as life safety is concerned.
