Fire Protection Group, Inc. Asks: Is Your House in the “Danger Gap”?

September 5, 2012

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Fire Protection Group, Inc. is the leading installer of fire protection systems in Southern California, a place where more awareness of domestic fire danger is needed.

“As California goes, so goes the nation,” says a familiar American truism. This saying is often used in debate over hot button political issues, and stirs up ire and anger outside of California. In some cases California is a positive trendsetter though. For instance, in protecting occupants from earthquakes, California is second only to Japan in establishing great building codes. Additionally, In 2010 California also became one of two states to require fire sprinkler systems to be installed in all new homes. This is welcome news to residents, but what of the homes that came before? Unfortunately some are in a predicament: highly flammable, and unprotected.

In the past 20 years, the building trends have not favored fire resistant materials. The news isn’t all bad, though, since construction demands fewer resources, toxic building materials are almost unheard of, and materials are more environmentally friendly. Unfortunately fire safety took a backseat to these innovations. Flame retardants and insulation are still present, but a fire now has the ability to spread and consume a whole home quicker and more efficiently. Homes built in the past two years are protected by legally mandated fire sprinklers, but what of homes built in the previous 18?

According to George Saadian of Fire Protection Group, Inc., “Simply put: fire sprinkler installation is crucial in these homes.” Fire Protection Group, Inc. has been in the business of Fire Protection for a long time. Saadian, general manager and chief engineer, has over three decades of experience in the fire protection business. The rest of the crew at Fire Sprinkler includes former Assistant Fire Chief Al Hernandez and a staff of highly trained contractors and consultants. “The fact that California is only now awakening to the necessity of these lifesaving fire protection services is crazy,” says Hernandez, “But better late than never.”

The necessity for builders to contract with fire protection consultants, and increased demand for these tools means they’re increased supply, and increased supply means lower prices. “Homeowners in California are fortunate; even if they aren’t in a post-2010 house, the service and the equipment are within the budget of the average household, largely thanks to these new codes,” Says Saadian.

If your home or office has no sprinklers, or for other services like alarms, fire pumps or for fire protection consulting services call the fire experts at Fire Protection Group, Inc. at (888)251-3488 or visit www.firesprinkler.com for information.
