Fires in small businesses can be devastating with many financial impacts:
• Losing customers who go somewhere else
• Loss of valuable stock and equipment
• Time and cost of building repairs or complete rebuilding
• Higher insurance premiums
Let’s not forget there's also the possibility of injuries and, worse still, loss of life. On top of that, the fire authority may prosecute you if people are affected by the fire in your premises.
