This is a reminder of the importance of not only an effective exit procedure, but also of making sure your passive fire protection is up to date and in compliance. Effective compartmentation of a hospital is essential to fire safety - this includes inspecting fire doors and fire and smoke dampers, implementing an above ceiling permit process for firestopping, and having an effective fire barrier management system in place for compliance management.
