The cost of an accidental fire can be enormous. Fires can cause fatalities, critical injuries and facility damage, leaving an organization unstable. Developing a strong fire protection program is one of the best ways to preserve lives and save property. At the Institute for Environmental Assessment, Inc. (IEA), our safety specialists help clients establish plans and procedures that reduce the risk of fire and provide a safety program allowing building users to respond effectively should this event occur.
IEA is an environmental health and safety consulting firm based in Minnesota. Clients include school districts, hospitals, businesses and government agencies. Founded in 1984, the firm serves clients throughout the United States.
Steps to greater fire safety
IEA safety consultants will provide services customized to your organization. These services include:
- Develop a customized written fire safety plan with evacuation maps
- Assist with inspections to evaluate compliance with building and fire codes
- Train employees in fire prevention techniques

Steps such as these can mean the difference between a disruptive event and a disaster. At IEA, we hope that your organization will never need the plans and procedures we design. But if they are required, it is important that they work.
