Preparing Your Business For Winter

During the past Winter, temperatures along the Eastern seaboard fell below zero with wind chills approaching -30F in parts of the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Cold weather brings the danger of impaired fire protection because of water freezing in sprinkler piping, underground mains, gravity suctions tanks or fire pumps. During a severe cold spell, these pipes can freeze, burst and produce devastating losses. Water damage from this type of incident, known as a freeze-up can affect products in storage, paperwork, records, furniture, machinery, computers and all types of electronic equipment. Such freezing not only leaves a risk vulnerable to fire and damage to the building contents, but may also necessitate expensive repairs to the system.
