Fortunately it is not too difficult to ensure a good level of fire prevention in homes and commercial structures. In many cases you will not even have to invest in a complex and often expensive fire alarm system. For residential homes, a number of affordable smoke detectors is often all that you need for increased fire safety.
The most important thing in regards to smoke detectors in your home is that you regularly test them and that you change the batteries preferably twice per year. A smoke detector where the batteries are exhausted will obviously be without use, so always keep that in mind!
While obtaining and installing common smoke detectors for residential homes shouldn’t pose any major problems, those fire alarms and fire prevention systems for commercial buildings are often far more complex.
Obviously, a structure such as a large office , warehouse or manufacturing plant will have other and quite different requirements for proper fire safety as compared to your own home.
In terms of fire safety we can differentiate between proactive or passive fire safety systems such as smoke detectors and fire alarms and those types of fire prevention systems that can actively fight a fire.
A good example here for such active systems would be sprinklers or other types of fire suppression systems such as those which operate by using CO2 or any other type of fire extinguishing agent.
If you are the owner of a commercial structure, the responsibility to look into and put into place adequate fire prevention systems will be yours. You may be required by law put in such a fire prevention systems, depending on the circumstances. I can therefore recommend that you get yourself acquainted with your local fire safety regulations. Those can vary and it is therefore smart if you know those regulations beforehand.
