Summer Fire Season Underlines Need for First-Rate Fire Protection Systems
LOS ANGELES, July 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Every night, it seems, major fires continue to lead both national and local newscasts. As the always potentially deadly combination of hot weather and wind worries both firefighters and property owners nationwide, the degree of interest in the best fire protection systems has never been higher. In fact, Fire Protection Group, Inc. is reporting a sharp spike in phone calls and serious inquires on all of their products and services, which include a number of thoughtfully designed and installed fire sprinkler systems.
Of course, the threat of fire is a serious year-round matter. On the other hand, hotter, drier temperatures clearly increase the threat, particularly in areas where parched vegetation and wind can increase the risk of a truly major fire. Moreover, the constant news coverage of such disasters as the Colorado wildfires fans the flames of concern on the part of home and business owners. Installing sprinklers and other precautions may be driven by the need to comply with state and local codes and regulation, but the very real risk of fire nevertheless remains a serious concern for all owners.
Aside from the moral and legal responsibility to protect life and limb, outstanding fire protection services are also important in terms of cold, hard cash. Any piece of property is a major investment for its owner; protecting that investment is obviously beyond crucial. Fire Protection Group, Inc. General Manager and Chief Engineer George Saadian notes that enquiries from interested owners of large and small businesses, as well as a number of individual homeowners, have been keeping him and his staff substantially busier than usual.
“It’s actually an outstanding educational opportunity,” said Mr. Saadian, a highly respected fire protection professional for more than three decades. “People’s idea of how fire sprinklers and other protection systems work tends to be largely drawn from movies and TV and are, therefore, not very accurate. According to Hollywood, in a standard fire sprinkler system, fire sprinkler heads always go off all at once throughout an entire building once the heat sensors are activated. Not only would that be pretty darn inefficient, it’s simply not an accurate portrayal.” Saadian added that, in case of a fire only the sprinkler head(s) closest to the fire activate and discharge water.
“What Fire Protection Group Inc. customers benefit from is a thoughtful design that provides the maximum possible protection – as well as total compliance with all regulations,” Saadian continued. “Our system in action might not always look like the massive deluges of water they show in the movies, but they do the job better and more efficiently. Considering that we’re looking at an extra hot, dry, and windy summer, that’s going to be more important than ever this year,” Mr. Saadian concluded.
