What is a Fire Escape?

Updated: Mar 18, 2023

Importance of Fire Escape

A fire escape is essential for the safety of a building's occupants in case of a fire emergency. It provides a safe and efficient means of escape by allowing people to quickly evacuate the building without using interior stairs or elevators, which may be unsafe during a fire. A well-designed fire escape can also provide access to emergency personnel to rescue individuals who may be trapped inside the building.

Having a fire escape can significantly reduce the risk of injury or death in a fire emergency, as well as minimize property damage.

In summary, a fire escape is a critical component of a building's fire safety plan, and it is crucial to have one in place to protect the occupants and the property in case of a fire.
