Fort Lauderdale, FL, July 19, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- A major factor in the safety and protection of any festival or event is compliant fire and safety equipment.
While the complex process of event management and organization is ongoing, fire and safety equipment compliance is often left as an afterthought.
All permanent structures in Florida are covered by the Florida State Building and Fire codes to ensure that all common and publicly accessible areas are adequately protected in case of fire, this would include firefighting equipment, monitored alarms, well-lit paths of exit etc.
However, temporary structures like marquees, food courts, docks and stages used for festivals and events fall under a gray area of code compliance, and the decision making on what type of equipment is required to keep the event safe is often left to under qualified and inexperienced management to deal with the local fire department (AHJ) and its interpretation of what is required at the time of the event.
Organizing or hosting an event can leave you with a minefield of obstacles to face and expensive equipment to buy just so you are able to satisfy the local AHJ that the event is safe and protected when it comes to fire and safety equipment.
Often left to the last minute and not given attention to until the AHJ visit for their final safety check, many events are held back from opening and sometimes cancelled altogether if they don’t meet the required fire and safety standards. These requirements are different each time depending on the event, location and size. This leaves many event managers with little or no time to prepare for the requested equipment that may be required.
“It’s not unusual to be called at 4pm on a Thursday by a festival or event manager that needs to open that evening but can’t open their event until someone installs certified fire extinguishers or tests and inspects on-site equipment like food trucks and it becomes an urgent operational situation.”
“Fire Ranger has over 25 years’ experience in event fire and safety equipment installations and planning and can work on our customers behalf to liaise with local fire departments.”
