As businesses adapt to Phase 1 of reopening, Eugene Springfield Fire wants to remind business owners of a few requirements around building, fire and life safety.
Local restaurants and retailers will likely alter their buildings to help people better maintain physical distancing. While providing people enough room to remain six feet apart, it’s also critically important to know how many people will be allowed in your building while keeping all exits open, facilities accessible to and usable by people with physical disabilities, fire lanes clear, and sprinklers, alarms and extinguishers accessible.
People looking for information on these topics can call their city building department or Eugene Springfield Fire Marshal.
We are here to help. We understand these are challenging times and businesses will be needing creative solutions to meet the safety of their patrons as well as the requirements set forth by the State.
