It is an unfortunate but common problem that businesses can be completely obliterated by a single fire. Of those that are hit, around 80% of those businesses fold within as little as 18 months, according to statistics provided by insurance companies. The worst affected (after a little anecdotal Google search) seem to be the cases in which important business data is lost, where companies are unable to recover their files. So naturally it would make sense for a business to have a plan put in place, in order to ensure continuity in the event of disaster striking.
How could a business forecast a fire? And what steps could a business take in order to protect not just the lives of their employees, but the building and contents?
