TENANT AWARENESS PROGRAM
It is the responsibility of the occupants at 750 Canyon to be aware of possible fire hazards and/or safety hazards that may be encountered. If such hazards are observed, please notify The Building Management
Office immediately so corrective measures can be implemented.
Listed below are some of the items that you as tenants can help prevent from becoming potential hazards.
- OBEY NO SMOKING SIGNS. No smoking is allowed in any suite in the building or within 15 feet of any door to the building.
- Investigate electrical equipment that is not working properly or smells strange. Unusual odors from appliances or cords can be a first sign of a fire.
- If you use an extension cord, plug only one appliance into it. Unplug extension cords when not in use. If you are using a power strip, ensure that appliances plugged in conform to the U.L. listed rating. NEVER overload the outlet, extension cord, or power strip.
- Make sure that all appliances are turned off prior to leaving the property. In your office area, assign at the minimum, two people to insure this is done on a nightly basis.
- Some personnel may want to use a space heater to supplement the building heating system. SPACE HEATERS are NOT ALLOWED on the property. Due to the high amount of fires caused each year by poorly maintained and non-U.L. rated space heaters, these items are considered a lease violation. Any tenant observed with a space heater in their work area will be subject to a $100.00 fine paid by the tenant's company, as well as confiscation of the space heater.
- In areas designated as "storage", all boxes and equipment per fire code regulations must not be within 24" from the ceiling. If boxes or equipment exceed the height requirement, that greatly reduces the effectiveness of the sprinkler system.
- Ensure that all trash is properly disposed of. This can be used as fuel by a fire.
- Stairwell doors on all floors should remain closed at all times and passage ways free of items that may impede the ability for people to enter the stairways.
- All combustible or flammable liquids should be stored in approved cabinets or containers. Report all such materials to the Building Management Office as to record such hazards for the Coppell Fire Department.
- If the elevator lobbies (freight elevator landings) and pathways are impeded by obstacles, this will reduce the effectiveness of the Fire Department or Paramedics to move quickly or not at all in the event of a situation in your area of the building. Notify the Building Management Office immediately if these conditions exist in your area.
