A fire can start anywhere at any time – often when you are least expecting it. That is why it pays to have a water storage tank connected to automatic sprinklers. Minimising damage is essential to save lives and property – not to mention ensure the continued operation of a business or public service.
A water storage tank is essential in buildings that are spread over multiple floors, contain a large amount of goods or pose a high risk. Warehouses, factories, care homes, hospitals, schools and tower blocks are among those recommended to invest in a robust fire fighting system. Having water readily available means a fire can be tackled quickly. Swift action can stop a fire from spreading and even extinguish it.
Water storage tank tips
Nationwide Water Solutions is the market-leading supplier of water storage tank services in the UK. A spokesman said: “Having enough water to douse a fire from the very beginning can bring a blaze under control quickly. At the very least, it will contain it. This gives people the time they need to safely evacuate a building.
“This week, we have seen fires in the UK start from mundane things like discarded cigarettes. Even something dropped outside a building can pose a hazard, meaning it makes sense for property owners to consider the benefits of storing water for the specific use of fighting a fire.”
