The Mohawk Valley Psychiatric Center in Utitca, New York has one of the most expensive shredders available. The problem is that it is not expensive because it is any faster or cuts to smaller pieces than the average office shredder. It is more expensive because it will cost thousands in repairs to the building.
The fire department responded to reports of smoke at the office. The sprinkler system was able to extinguish the fire. The cause of the fire was determined to be the offices shredder.
It doesn’t appear the fire caused a lot of damage but the sprinkler system sure will. It is unknown the total damage and the amount of equipment and records destroyed. The office will have to be closed as the damage is repaired.
It is impossible to eliminate the risk of fire with a shredder. The options are to take on the risks in the hands of untrained employees or leave them to experts in operating shredding equipment. A shredding service takes away the risk of fire in the average office. But fire risk is a small reason to outsource behind saving money and increasing security.
