Certification of Fire Escapes in Boston

Maintaining a fire escape should be of prime importance for any building or apartment complex. If fire escapes in Boston are maintained on a regular basis, ‘if’ being the operative word, then they should last as long as the building. In the unlikely event of a fire, and people living in the apartment complex needing to use it in an emergency, it would become more of a safety hazard than an escape route, if it isn’t maintained well.

Also the building /complex owners would be liable to pay penalties for violating the Building Code regarding the upkeep of the fire escapes. Boston Ironworks provides you with maintenance of fire escapes as well as certification.
