Fire emergencies don’t discriminate. It can occur in any type and size of business, without any regard to whether your workplace is a hospital, a construction site, a mall, or an office. A business without a fire evacuation procedure is like a ticking time bomb – All it takes is just one spark to put your operations to a screeching halt.

Here’s a grim picture of what could happen if you don’t create a Fire evacuation procedure as soon as possible.

Damages to business structures

Millions of dollars are lost due to fire emergencies each year. Depending on your business, it could take months or even years to rebuild a facility back to its 100% working condition. The damages could go beyond the physical and structural concerns. You could also lose files and data, machinery, equipment, and products, and all these equate to monetary value. If you don’t have good insurance or a backup plan, you might end up rebuilding operations from scratch or worst shut down the business entirely.

The damages go further beyond the tangible aspects of your business. Your business could end up making the rounds on the evening news, newspapers, and social media. Negative reputation could significantly slow down your recovery process, and cut your access to new clients and resources your business needs to move forward.
