The Fremont Senior Living Plant Operations Allows No Slip Ups With Building Safety

Building Safety Month takes place in May every year and is internationally recognized for raising awareness in keeping buildings safe. 

This initiative unites industries, associations, academia, and government under a common goal to protect the public by creating a safe and resilient environment. Our primary focus as the Plant Operations Team at The Fremont Senior Living Springfield, MO is keeping our residents, visitors, and staff safe.

We perform tasks regularly to safeguard our community. Monthly fire drills are conducted with the residents and staff. Every new employee is given a tour and shown where the fire extinguishers and fire alarms are located. We also do groundskeeping around the building to make sure there is no debris collected that could cause or aid in a fire. Every employee is fitted with a N95 mask upon hiring and annually thereafter.

As Plant Operations Director my first steps with new employees is getting them familiar with fire safety in the building and making sure they have been fitted with their N95 mask. I am responsible for both building maintenance and the safety of residents and staff.

I practice building safety at home by making sure I have working fire extinguishers on hand and smoke detectors are maintained.
