Fire Department Access

October Blog Series:  Fire Department Access

Learning from our best!  Code Red Consultants held an internal training session to review the requirements for Fire Department Access in accordance with 527 CMR 1.00.  The timely presentation was a nod to the upcoming 2021 Fire Prevention Week (October 3-9).  Fire Prevention Week commemorates the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, and serves as a reminder for the importance of fire safety in the places we live, work and play.

Code Red Consultants is fortunate to have full time staff members that wear a very important uniform outside of the office, giving their time and expertise back to the communities they call home.  Jeremy, Corey, Tyler and David are invaluable internal resources offering their perspective for the benefit of our clients and the safety of their projects, occupants and communities served.

In honor of these four guys, the local Fire Departments we collaborate with, and all the brave men and women that have chosen this profession, we will be celebrating Fire Prevention Week with a month-long blog series.  Check back each week as we cover four important areas of Fire Department access!
