Fire brigades

  • Risk

From the beginning of mankind, fire accompanied man. In it he found protection, light to light the night, heat to mitigate the cold and cook food. The fire was initially feared, then worshipped and finally controlled, allowing man to convert his energy into motion, light and heat; going on like this, almost inadvertently becoming part of our daily lives. The fire is always latent and at the slightest possibility awakens from its lethargy exposing its danger, having to be again controlled and reduced.

When the fire comes out of control, the fire begins. In a fire in addition to flames and heat, other substances such as smoke and gases are present that are as dangerous as the fire itself.

Minimize damage and lossthates that may occur at the facility as a result of a fire threat, intervening with the means of safety available in the unit and/or area. Ensure that there is no overload in the power lines, or that there is a build-up of flammable material.
