The Significance of Fire & Life Safety in Healthcare Facilities
Healthcare facilities present distinct fire safety challenges. The presence of vulnerable patients, critical care equipment, and various hazardous materials necessitates a robust fire safety protocol. Inadequate measures can lead to devastating consequences, jeopardizing lives and critical infrastructure. Adhering to stringent fire safety regulations is not just a legal requirement but a moral imperative to protect patients, staff, and visitors.
