Pre Fire Planning

Pre-incident planning should be a joint venture between the fire department and the property management team. A fire officer may be the expert in fire safety and fire fighting, but the property management personnel are the experts on the building. The planning process must necessarily be collaborative and on-going. Building owners and managers should be prepared to fulfill their roles in the joint venture, and they should expect responsiveness and professionalism from fire department representatives in developing a plan. A successful collaboration can save lives and preserve property.
