Nursing homes can be susceptible to fires on multiple points. Fires can start in the kitchen and spread to the rest of the facility or could start in areas such as the generator room and many others. With this in mind, ASCO Fire experts can assess a nursing home facility and give advice on what can be done to reduce its susceptibility to fires. ASCO Fire can also help design and provide fire protection solutions that will minimize harm or damage from a fire.
About The Nursing Home Industry
Nursing homes incorporate so many elements in one facility that most large nursing home facilities require multiple fire protection systems to ensure that all risks are covered. For example, fires in nursing homes could just as easily start in the private rooms as they could start in the boiler room. Such fires may cause loss of life and significant damage to property.
