When we’re in the office, we think about deadlines and paperwork. We rarely think about fires and emergencies. But we should.
In 2018, more than 100,000 American commercial buildings caught on fire. These fires killed 85 people and destroyed more than 2.6 billion dollars worth of property. Since 2009, fires have gone up by 26 percent.
One reason fires are rising is because people are growing complacent. They don’t know how to evacuate from a building. They don’t have the tools to stay safe.
