Fire Hazard Mitigation Checklist Mobile App
The Fire Hazard Mitigation Checklist is useful app for ensuring fire hazards from a variety of sources are properly mitigated, including electrical fires, natural gas fires, and fires from other flammable liquids.
How does it work?
The app helps with hazard mitigation planning by prompting a user to check for items or take actions such as eliminating electrical cord overloads, ensuring power strips have circuit breakers, eliminating use of hazardous adapters, repairing faulty appliances and cords, installing a natural gas monitor, identifying and labeling natural gas shut-off valves, identifying flammable or combustible materials, eliminating ignition sources near flammable or hazardous materials, and more. This app is a useful multi-hazard mitigation plan addressing different fire sources in buildings. Using this app properly can promote safety in both residential buildings (such as a single-family dwelling or apartment building) and non-residential buildings (such as offices or warehouses), help in performing a fire hazard risk assessment, and implementing mitigation measures. The mitigation actions and mitigation strategies in this planning app are easy to perform, not overly costly, and can help to prevent an otherwise preventable disaster.
