Fire and ice

Is your facility one that has extended time to comply with the U.S.-mandated fire safety regs? If so, please don’t wait out your given time. Just do the necessary fire safety upgrades now.

And please FORCE all your employees to practice those fire safety protocols written in your emergency planning book... at least once a month. So they’ll always be ready, just in case. You know, just in case they're the only person left on shift after midnight, etc.

Because as an editor and journalist, I really, really don’t want to have to write the next tragic news story about your facility.
