Don't Risk Non-Compliance

Keeping your Chicago condo safe is just part of the day-to-day tasks that you as the owner or HOA member are responsible for. When it comes to Chicago fire safety, you must keep in compliance or face the consequences. It’s not worth the trouble of a legal issue if you’re not in compliance with the laws here in the city. That’s why so many turn to Connected Fire for the assistance they provide.

Risks of Non-Compliance

There are many risks to you personally and as a business when the fire safety regulations are not kept in place. For example, you can face a personal lawsuit for negligence if you don’t have the proper safety protocols in place. We’ve seen countless times where board members did not realize they could be sued personally for negligence in the event of a fire injury or death. If the proper safety equipment is not in place, you could be facing the suit alone.

Another risk of non-compliance is losing your liability coverage. In most cases, insurance companies will cover you and the board when a lawsuit takes place. However, if the proper protocols were not followed, you could lose that support and representation.

You can risk losing coverage for building repairs as well. Insurance companies do not cover issues when they know that the safety compliance regulations were not properly followed. This could leave you trying to pay for damages to your property, to the tenant’s property, and more.
