Hospitality Industry Fire Risk Management: “Security Alert! Check The Security Of Your Hotel’s Knox Boxes Frequently” By Todd Seiders, CLSD, Petra Risk Solutions

November 11, 2013 in General

Security Alert! Check The Security Of Your Hotel’s Knox Boxes Frequently

by Todd Seiders, CLSD

Check your Knox Boxes! A Knox Box, known officially as the KNOX-BOX Rapid Entry System, is a small, wall-mounted safe-like box that holds building keys for firefighters and EMTs to retrieve in emergencies. In many jurisdictions, the local Fire Department requires that a Knox Box be located outside of your hotel (check with your local Fire Department for requirements; some jurisdictions may not require hotels to have one), for their use only, in the event of an emergency. The Knox Box has a complete set of the hotel’s master keys locked inside this box.

Halloween 1987 – My House Was Destroyed by a Fire

October 31, 2013 in General

On 31 October 1987 (Halloween night) our house caught on fire.  My family refers to this event as  the ”Fire of 87.”

The fire started in the attic and destroyed the front part of the house.  The roof over the living room and dining room was gone.  There was also some damage to the master bedroom.  The house was uninhabitable after that night.

We had just moved in, so most of our stuff was still in boxes in the back part of the house.  That fact saved most of our personal items and greatly reduced the amount of stuff that was lost in the fire. 

Aawwww! Love and fire!

Investigators have determined a fire that destroyed the Oyster House restaurant in Olympia started in the dryer, when cleaning towels spontaneously combusted. Now, they’re sending out a warning to all restaurants, hair salons, and even bowling alleys where towels are used to clean things and then washed and tossed in the dryer.

Does your family have a Fire Escape Plan?

April 30, 2013 in General

edithFrom the City of Tucson Fire Department! Escape plan advice for all families!

Do you have an escape plan?

Fires and burns kill hundreds of children each year and permanently scar thousands more. Yet more fire victims die from smoke than flames.

Smoke can overwhelm a child or adult in minutes.

How would you get out of your home in case of fire? How about your children? How would they escape from a second or third floor? Plan fire escape routes and practice them.
