Don’t Ignore Fire Safety! You Could Be Responsible!

As a property owner, manager, or HOA member, the Chicago fire safety of your building is key. However, many owners and managers don’t think it has anything to do with them. They are under the impression it’s not going to affect them otherwise if they miss compliance for the regulations. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

With the increased regulation of Chicago’s fire safety standards, you may feel as if you have no idea where to even start. Sure, you’ve been through some inspections. However, keeping up with the regulation changes and advancements has become overwhelming. That’s why it’s important to have a company such as Connected Fire on your side.

Learning the risks of not keeping up with the laws can help you to avoid them down the road. Take a look at what you can face if you don’t keep the regulations updated in your condo and how Connected Fire can help.

Risks You’re Taking With Ignoring the Law

The risks you could be facing if your compliance is not in order include:

  • Property Insurance Denied – In the event of a fire in the condo, if you’re not up to code you could lose your insurance coverage. They can refuse to pay simply because there was something missing in your fire safety. You could be left with unpaid repairs on your hands.
  • Lawsuits Against You – This may be a shock to you, but board members can be held liable personally for a fire if code violations are found. For example, if you have safety equipment in place but it isn’t properly maintained, those involved can sue the members of the board personally, not just the condo.
  • No Liability Coverage – In insurance plans, the board is typically covered from these types of lawsuits in their liability insurance coverage. However, when there is deemed violations to the fire safety in Chicago, that protection can be null and void. They can choose not to cover the members.
