Fires Can Cost You
Fires and accidents are a constant threat to your business and your people. Not only can a fire or accident hurt your employees, but it can hurt your business. Some businesses never recover. On average, an estimated 25,000 fires requiring the fire department occur in business each year. Property damage from fires is an estimated $1.2 billion annually. Law suits and workers' compensation cost even more. Insurance only covers so much.
Stopping fires and responding to accidents quickly can mean the difference between a small accident and an emergency. Being prepared is the answer! Illinois Fire & Safety Company has the products and services you need to plan and prepare!
