Just like any structure, hotels are at risk for fires—but there are specific aspects that make their fire prevention systems and plans more complex. First, hotels have a high occupancy load due to the many rooms and numerous guests that could spend any given night. In addition, unlike office spaces or apartment complexes, guests are unfamiliar with the building and viable escape routes. Many hotels also have restaurants—kitchens add a great risk of fire due to open flames, flammable grease traps, and storage of flammable materials.
As property manager of your hotel, you can ensure that the structure has properly installed, professionally maintained, and regularly inspected fire protection systems throughout the building.
