Emergency lighting plays a crucial role in illuminating fire evacuation routes in the event of a fire, allowing everyone to exit the premises safely. In this blog post, we at Fire Protection Services (FPS) will take a closer look at emergency lighting and discuss why it is so important, particularly in the workplace.
If a fire does occur within a commercial property, this can often result in a power outage. Should this be the case, a business’ emergency lights will automatically switch on, showcasing clear evacuation routes. Having fully functional emergency lighting is key to avoiding serious injuries should a fire break out.
Emergency response teams such as fire fighters are vital in ensuring that fires are put out safely and that everyone has been evacuated. Well lit pathways thanks to emergency lighting make this task much quicker and easier for them.
Should an evacuation of a building be required, having clear, well lit evacuation routes are crucial for instilling calmness in what is an extremely stressful situation. This helps to reduce panic and create a more organised evacuation. What’s more, a business’ employees will also be more relaxed during their day to day routine, knowing that if the worst does happen, there is a clear process in place.
