The chemistry lab which contains large quantities of flammable liquids is especially at risk. A fire in such places can go out of control and thus, fire safety in schools has become an extremely important issue. An uncontrolled fire can cause not just property damage but also huge loss in life. Fire safety is a crucial issue for everyone. Fire Extinguisher Products help us to prevent from fire. With proper training workers can eliminate fire hazards and respond quickly and efficiently if a fire breaks out. Fire safety in a School environment is very vital and important. Fire safety rules and regulations are designed to save lives and protect school inmates and property. We are responsible for fire safety and the health and safety of all people on the school premises”.
