Fire Prevention Products – Do They Really Prevent Fires?

“Fire prevention products” is a fairly misleading term. Prevention suggests that you can stop a fire from happening, which in truth is not really the case. For sure, you can take all the necessary steps, including:

• Devising a fire safety plan
• Installing smoke alarms
• Installing fire proof doors, windows and floors
• Strategically placing fire extinguishers around the property
• Practising a fire drill once a month
• The list goes on…

But do any of these things actually prevent fire or just protect against fire? Fire prevention equipment doesn’t actually stop a fire starting, what it does is give you a tool to tackle a fire with. But again, this is problematic in that if a fire breaks out you should really vacate the premises immediately. People die every year from tackling fires that are too big to be approached and get out of hand very quickly. Making that split decision of whether a fire is too big to handle or not is difficult and unadvisable. Yet every day people rush back inside to grab belongings or try to save their property – some get lucky others don’t.

Fire Prevention Systems

There is only really one fire prevention system that is worth the money and that is a fire sprinkler system. Agreed, a fire sprinkler system like the fire prevention products listed above, won’t stop a fire breaking out – nothing in the world can do that – but it will prevent loss of life and limit property damage to a minimum. Fire sprinkler systems tackle fire so you don’t have to risk getting third degree burns or suffering brain damage or permanent lung damage from smoke inhalation. If a fire breaks out then you get out and let the sprinklers handle the rest. No grabbing for a fire blanket or extinguisher and no need to shut fire doors behind you as you leave. The sprinklers will put out the fire efficiently, and more often than not, well before the fire service arrives.

The Truth About Fire Sprinklers

So why don’t more people have sprinklers as fire prevention equipment? Simply because people don’t realise how effective sprinklers are and how cost-effective they have become for residential premises. The word “system” makes people assume expensive, when in fact prices are now very reasonable for the level of protection a sprinkler system can provide. Secondly, people worry about water damage. Yet again, they don’t realise that a fire will do far worse damage to your property and so will the hoses of the fire service when they arrive.

Fire prevention products are a good start, but to really limit the outbreak of fire you require a fire sprinkler system in your home.
