As part of our continuing effort to meet our mission and reduce community risk, the Maynard Fire Department will be starting a new round of pre-fire planning and fire safety surveys in commercial occupancies here in Maynard.
What this involves is firefighters going into commercial occupancies and conducting a comprehensive pre-fire plan. This pre-fire plan will give us information vital to protecting that building and other buildings around it in the event a fire breaks out. The second part is to conduct a fire safety survey on each commercial property in the community. This purpose of this part of the project is to help the building owner or manager keep their property as safe as possible to reduce the risk of a fire occurring and lessening the chance the buildings occupants will be harmed in the event there is a fire.
We have scheduled these pre-plans and safety surveys to occur throughout the year. Each group of firefighters has been assigned specific buildings and a month in which to conduct pre-fire plans and safety surveys. We ask that you cooperate with our firefighters as our ultimate goal is to protect you, your business and its patrons and ultimately the residents and visitors of Maynard. If our firefighters have visited you at a bad time, we ask that you try and reschedule a more convenient time with them before they leave. Certain occupancies in the community are required to have a safety survey conducted more than once a year, specifically churches are required to be surveyed (2) annually and schools (4) times annually. These occupancies may need to have specific times and a date assigned to them to ensure a property representative is available to assist in the survey. This process is not meant to be, and should not be disruptive to your operation.
During this process our firefighters will be requesting certain information from you as the property representative. This request will be for up to date contact information so that in the event we need to contact a building representative after hours, we have the correct information. Part of this information will be a valid email address if you have one. The reason for this is to give us the ability to email you a copy of our inspection report when it is complete. Your insurance carrier may have an interest in seeing this report or the building owner may like a copy if that is not you. This is part of our effort keep costs down by using and storing less paper moving forward.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.
