Big or Small, every Government Building Should be Prepared for any Emergency.
GOVERNMENT OFFICE BUILDING SAFETY
Since the birth of the United States, our government has been the connection between our communities and the citizens who call them home. What makes our governing bodies efficient is the personnel who work every day to ensure its duties are carried out. Those people deserve to be safe and secure while at work, which is why Building Maps ensures that all government facilities, local, state or federal, are well-prepared for any emergency.
Creating fire evacuation maps or emergency action plans for government facilities always present a unique challenge. As each building has a distinct structure and security requirements, fire exit maps and evacuation plans will never have the same design. Building structures range from high rise skyscrapers, gated campuses, and courthouses, along with vastly diverse onsite personnel and civilians, meaning each map must be made especially for its location. This complexity of details makes using a templated map obsolete.
GOVERNMENT OFFICE FIRE EVACUATION MAPS
5,000 WORK-RELATED DEATHS HAPPEN IN THE US EACH YEAR
5% OF WORK FATALITIES HAPPEN IN AN OFFICE SETTING
15% IS A RESULT OF AN ACT OF VIOLENCE
There are approximately 5,000 work-related deaths throughout the US each year. These situations are all unforeseen events, which no one wants or expects to happen. However, preparing safe and efficient routes to evacuation, first aid locations, and secure structures can save lives. Maps and route creation must be complete before any emergency takes place because once an injury or emergency occurs, every second counts.
Most may think that government facilities are unlikely to have an event that results in death or severe injury, but throughout the U.S. 5% of at work fatalities happen in an office or building setting, and 15% are a result of an act of violence. That may sound like a small portion. However, it equates to hundreds of injuries and deaths each year. By making these precautionary steps before they are needed saves times, lessens anxiety, and prevents loss of life or serious injury.
