Fire Safety Inspections & Emergency Preparedness at Bronson Commons

Nursing homes are inspected for building design and operational features designed to provide safety from fire, smoke, electrical failures and gas leaks. Nursing homes are also surveyed for emergency preparedness.

Fire safety specialists inspect nursing homes to determine if a nursing home meets Life Safety Code (LSC) standards, which are based on codes established by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The inspection covers building design and operational features designed to provide safety from fire, smoke, electrical failures, and gas leaks.

Nursing homes are also required to have an emergency preparedness plan, based off an all-hazards risk approach. Nursing homes are surveyed for emergency preparedness, along with a regularly scheduled survey like health or Life Safety Code (LSC)/fire safety inspection.
