In the first four days of 2011 five people lost their lives in fires in Scotland. Tragically, the total number of deaths in fires in 2009/10 was 59 and the total number of fires in that one year was 38,658. Alarming figures indeed - figures which prove that still not enough is being done to prevent fire and preserve lives.

Fire destroys everything in its path and the causes of fires in the workplace range from faulty wiring to arson. Extinguishers should always be on hand and staff should know how to use them. Any organisation can be affected at any time and a fire warning system must be in place, employees should be told how to respond to it quickly.

John Noble, Director of Safe and Sound Limited in Kirkintilloch told us "Fire alarm maintenance is one of the most important areas when looking after your business. If your fire alarm fails in the event of an outbreak of a fire you could be putting your life or the lives of your employees at risk."
