Commenting on a recent article, the Los Angeles based fire safety group notes that business and property owners can significantly decrease their chances of suffering extensive fire damage if their property is routinely inspected and equipped with the appropriate fire safety and prevention tools.

Buildings are less likely to suffer extensive fire damage if they utilize the services of a premier fire protection agency.

Premier fire consulting company, Fire Protection Group Inc. (FPG) notes that buildings and large properties are less likely to suffer extensive fire damage if they are routinely inspected and equipped with the latest fire protection systems.

According to an October 10 article published in the Los Angeles Times, the fourth floor of a senior housing apartment complex caught fire, prompting the evacuation of several of its inhabitants. Premier fire consulting company, Fire Protection Group Inc. (FPG) notes that buildings and large properties are less likely to suffer extensive fire damage if they are routinely inspected and equipped with the latest fire protection systems. FPG Inc. goes on to note that business and property owners can benefit from utilizing the cutting-edge services of a professional fire prevention company, such as:

Fire Extinguisher Inspection - One of the most common and highly effective forms of fire prevention is the fire extinguisher. FPG Inc. notes that individuals are often unaware of where their building’s fire extinguishers are located and sometimes may not even know if they are up to code. This can become a problem during a state-mandated inspection and can result in a property owner being penalized. The Los Angeles based fire consulting group goes on to note that a fire extinguisher inspection can give business and property owners the upper hand so that they know that their extinguishers are in working order and up-to-date with any recent fire code changes.

Fire Escape Ladder - High-rise buildings in particular can oftentimes be a great risk in times of an emergency, especially for those residing on the upper level floors. FPG Inc. notes that a premier fire safety company can help business and residential property owners correctly install the most current fire escape ladders to ensure the safety of a building’s residents while also adhering to any fire code regulations.

Fire Watch - The Los Angeles fire prevention company goes on to note that, while it’s important to make sure that buildings undergo routine fire extinguisher and ladder inspections to ensure that everything is in working order, sometimes a building’s fire sprinkler systems must be turned off in order to make repairs, renovations, or updates. In this case, property owners can count on fire watch, an important service that sends a highly knowledgeable and extremely experienced fire safety team equipped with a fire truck to guard the premises around the clock while the fire sprinkler system is shut off. This can help ensure the safety and well-being of a business owner’s employees while also potentially saving valuable property, if a disaster should occur.
