What fire safety should a business follow?

Fire exits are designed to provide continuous and unobstructed means of exiting a building. An exiting system in any building may include doors, doorways, corridors, stairways, and any other exiting systems. Required exit doors must not be locked when a building is occupied. Escape routes should be posted at work stations and updated when changes are made. Remind personnel to observe the best escape route from their location. A fire drill or walk through is also a good idea. All exiting requirements are described in the International Building Codes and International Fire Codes. If you should have any questions about your emergency exiting system you may contact the Fire Marshal’s Office at 281.403.4311 during normal business hours.
