The article discusses the susceptibility of every facility to be the source of an industrial disaster. Accordingly, plants, factories and mills frequently keep failing to take on real preparation that could mitigate the chance of having a fire. To avoid this, it is allegedly the role of the local fire chief to know whether these facilities conform with the federal government's regulation. Moreover, it must be known to him the materials present within that facility for his preplanning purposes.
