Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 18, 2016
According to an article published December 3rd by The Banner-Press, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the United States Fire Administration (USFA) are currently promoting their winter fire safety campaign, “Put a Freeze on Winter Fires”; the effort is meant to reduce the damage to life and property done every year by fires in homes and businesses. George Saadian of Fire Protection Group Inc., a fire safety firm based in the Los Angeles area, explains that, while Southern California may not have the same cold weather that has the rest of the country running to turn up the heat, the article points out several important factors for homeowners and businesses to consider. According to Fire Protection Group Inc., the most important of these tips include:
- Be Careful Cooking – As the article points out, cooking is the number one cause of house fires in the United States. Fire Protection Group Inc. advises those of us who cook to be diligent about ensuring that everything is done in a manner that is effective, but safe. They note that, even when counter space is tight, it is important to ensure that anything flammable is kept away from an open flame, and that there are functional fire extinguishers and fire alarm systems at the ready if a fire does happen to break out.
- Dispose of Christmas Trees Immediately After the Holidays – While it may seem like a waste to dispose of a perfectly nice looking tree after a few weeks, Fire Protection Group Inc. explains that tossing the tree sooner rather than later could truly be a lifesaving move. The article notes that, while Christmas tree fires are relatively rare, the odds of a fatality in these types of fires are more than four times higher than with normal house fires. Fire Protection Group Inc. explains that, even if the tree is kept well away from any open flame, malfunctioning Christmas lights could still create a spark which, surrounded by dry tree needles, could quickly turn into a serious fire.
Fire Protection Group Inc. explains that no building is too small for proper fire safety equipment, such as fire pumps. While the majority of the firm’s work is with larger buildings, homeowners and small businesses can still benefit from the highest quality fire safety equipment.
