Planning for and managing fire and life safety incidents within a building is no easy task. Identifying problematic events, understanding how to share information, developing a response plan, and determining how to resume normal operations all require careful consideration to ensure a positive outcome.
Many organizations look to solve these problems within their buildings with specific solutions that address each concern. While it is good that organizations are taking the steps to prepare for and respond to these events, they may unwittingly create a larger headache for themselves than if they had no plan at all.
Checking a box looks good on paper but doesn’t always work well in practice. The more individual solutions within a building the more complex it can be to implement plans when events occur.
