The possibility of a fire occurring in any type of occupancy or structure is a threat that must be taken seriously. A fire in a healthcare care facility would place occupants including patients, residents, staff and visitors in extreme jeopardy due to the custodial nature of these types of properties and the physical and mental limitations of infirmed residents. Positive practices and measure must be incorporated into the operations of every healthcare facility to help ensure the safety of building occupants by preventing the ignition or spread of fire. This on-line Positive Fire and Life Safety Practices in-service is designed to help you understand the threat of fire, recognize potential fire hazards and causes as well as understand positive practices that will help reduce the chances of a fire from occurring or limiting its potential spread.
