When to know it’s time to maintain a fire escape?

It’s time to maintain a fire escape when you notice signs of wear and tear such as rust, loose or damaged bolts, cracked steps or platforms, or any other structural damage. Regular inspections, ideally conducted annually, can help ensure the fire escape is in good working condition. Additionally, any time after extreme weather events or other incidents that could potentially damage the fire escape, it’s essential to inspect and maintain it promptly.
