Hotel fires can be extremely traumatizing for someone staying at a hotel. If you are at a hotel on vacation or on a business trip, the last idea in your mind is that there will be a hotel fire. Many hotel fires occur in the bedroom area of the hotel, where the guests are sleeping and staying. Some hotel fires are caused by someone illegally cooking in the hotel room. Other times, there can be an electrical malfunction, or someone using appliances wrongly in a hotel.
Hotels Need to Have Operational Smoke Alarms in the Hotel Rooms
A hotel needs to have operational smoke alarms in all of the hotel rooms where guests are staying. Additionally, a hotel should have water sprinklers keyed to the fire and smoke alarms in the hotel guest rooms. This is to ensure that if the smoke alarm goes off, that the fire alarm, smoke alarm and water will act to put out the fire in the rooms in case of an emergency. If the sprinklers or automatic extinguishing systems (AESs) are not working or installed in a hotel room, then these fire deterrents will not put out the fire because it is not in place to do so.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Finds Many Hotel Fires Can Be Prevented with Proper Fire Deterrents in Place
The National Fire Protection Association or NFPA notes that fires can be prevented, if a hotel has fire deterrent systems in place. The prevention for a fire in a hotel guest room will save countless lives, in the event of an actual fire. If a building fire is confined to one room, it may be possible that the water sprinklers can put that fire out fast, before even calling the fire department to come and fight the blaze! Also, if there is a nonconfined fire that breaks out in another area of the hotel, the staff can be trained on how to put out or prevent fires in these other common areas to also save lives. For example, if a fire at a hotel breaks out in the boiler room of the hotel, then a highly trained staff can close fire doors and evacuate the areas to help save lives and prevent the fire spreading to other areas of the hotel in that circumstance. Fires can occur anywhere at a hotel, including:
- In a guest room
- In a trash container
- In a commercial trash compactor
- In a boiler room
- In the laundry room
- In a chimney
- In any area of the hotel
