Fires in hotels pose a serious threat to life and property and failure to provide and maintain high-quality fire-protection measures can also have dire consequences. Advanced’s Mark Taylor explores this in ‘Don’t rely on a wake-up call: Hotels have no room to compromise on fire protection’ on page 112.
