Health Care and Hospitals
Fire Protection and Security for Hospitals & Healthcare Facilities.
Healthcare facilities are unique organizations that require complex systems as a part of their Life Safety initiatives. Along with fire protection, the security of a facility that is often open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week can present its own unique challenges. The professionals specializing in security at Fire Fighter Sales & Service Company have significant experience working with healthcare facilities.
Security is Vital.
Cameras, CCTV, and video monitoring can be used in combination to provide you with the best solution possible. Our NICET certified technicians are experts in system integration allowing your life safety and security systems providing for more centralized control over your monitoring systems.
Joint Commission Information
Most hospitals have achieved or are in the process of preparing for Joint Commission Accreditation. The professionals at Fire Fighter Sales and Service Company can assist your organization with compliance to the life safety components of the standards. We understand that the evaluation is based on a combination of the following:
- Inspection of the building’s fire safety equipment and features
- Compliance with relevant Life Safety Code® requirements set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
- Staff responsibilities (including orientation, competency, and training of staff)
Through an initial survey, Fire Fighter Sales & Service Company employees will be able to assess your current degree of compliance with these requirements and identify vulnerabilities that exist in your emergency management processes. According to an article entitled Preparing for the Joint Commission by OH&S:
“The Regulatory standards focus on how well an organization documents the maintenance, testing and inspection activities to ensure the facility is providing a safe environment for patients, visitors, and caregivers.”
