Fire & Security Solutions for Healthcare Facilities
There are a number of challenges to consider when creating a fire safety plan for a health facility. There will likely be many visitors coming and going, and so providing adequate directions for evacuation is essential. It is also important that the fire safety procedure caters for individuals who may be unable to evacuate or extinguish a fire themselves because of a health condition. Alternative fire alarm systems and comprehensive staff training should be implemented to account for these problems.
Fire hazards in Healthcare Facilities
Kitchen facilities and the electrical equipment used throughout a hospital can present real risks of fire, as can the overloading of plug sockets. All healthcare facilities across Sidcup, Bromley and Kent can benefit from Fire Action’s expertise.
Security solutions are needed within healthcare facilities to protect patients and staff, and in some cases there’s a need to stop patients getting out, as well as intruders getting in. CCTV cameras can be used to keep track of who goes in and out of a building, and access control can be installed to stop people accessing areas they shouldn’t.
Fire Action can design a CCTV system to perfectly suit the needs of a healthcare facility, allowing authorised persons to monitor goings on whilst maintaining the privacy of patients. For access control, we can install keypad entry systems and biometric systems for maximum security.
