Settling for Less than the Best Fire Alarm Systems is Simply Goofy
A recent Disneyland fire emergency is a reminder that you needn’t wish upon a star for top fire prevention Fire Protection Group, Inc. remains the leader in safety and prevention
LOS ANGELES, July 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — If you’re a landlord or property manager, you’re no doubt well aware of the necessity of fire prevention through the National Fire Prevention Association and the challenges inherent in passing rigorous NFPA25 testing requirements. While fire dangers in Southern California are always top of mind, residents of the region are also lucky to benefit from the design and installation of equipment like fire alarm systems through Fire Protection Group, Inc. The celebrated experts in fire prevention boast over 30 million square feet of completed projects to their credit, including installation of commercial fire sprinkler systems for government buildings, private commerce structures, and even single family homes. That’s why, when the team at Fire Protection Group, Inc. learned of a recent fire emergency at Disneyland, they were eager to find out how the “The Happiest Place on Earth” would handle a situation that’s far scarier than the Haunted Mansion.
In late June, Disneyland patrons experienced more suspense and drama than even Uncle Walt could deliver when an uncontrolled fire broke out on a loading dock in the backstage area of the park. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. KTLA reports that plumes of black smoke were visible from various parts of the park, including from the front of the iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle and Toontown towards the back of the park. After about 20 minutes, fire crews were able to extinguish the flames.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported, and the park wasn’t evacuated – a fact that some might find surprising, considering the high risk posed by an uncontrolled fire and the famously cautious corporate leadership at the Disney Corporation. However, it is a testament of the ability of a highly trained, professional team to put out a fire efficiently and effectively when they’re properly equipped – and Disney is famously prepared for any contingency. That’s why so many property owners and managers of high-risk facilities like government buildings, university campuses, and skyscrapers trust the fire expertise offered at FPG, Inc.
Their team boasts a combined 200 years of experience in designing and installing fire safety equipment like alarm systems, pumps, extinguishers and generators, as well as performing fire watch and consulting, among many other life-saving services. In fact, FPG, Inc. general manager and chief engineer George Saadian has even provided necessary revisions to the NFPA standard, cementing his reputation as a true leader in the field. The influence of Mr. Saadian is apparent through the equally dedicated and distinguished team he has built, including retired LAFD Chief Al Hernandez and Captain Bob Holloway.
As the recent fire emergency at Disneyland illustrates, behind every major celebrated public property or properly maintained municipality, you’ll find a first-rate fire prevention team ensuring the safety of the property and any individuals within. If you’re looking to protect your investments and people under your care from the inherent dangers of uncontrolled fire, don’t hesitate to contact FPG, Inc. today.
