Indianapolis Fire Attorneys
Public buildings are responsible for adhering to certain safety standards in terms of building design to protect occupants in the event of an emergency and allow them a safe and speedy exit. This is especially important in the event of a fire. If a fire breaks out in a public building, occupants need to be notified of the fire in a timely manner and must be able to easily find emergency exits to escape harm.

The Dangers of Fire Injuries

The results of burn injuries can be devastating. A person who is stuck in a burning building can suffer
- Lung damage due to smoke inhalation
