Even only one new business or building owner taking actions to have these systems put in place really can make an important difference.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 25, 2015
George Saadian, the general manager and lead engineer of Los Angeles fire safety firm Fire Protection Group Inc., explains that it is an unfortunate reality that many individuals, businesses and communities only implement important safety measures after a tragedy occurs, rather than being proactive in preventing them. According to an article published December 9th by Firefighter Nation, a recent fire in a Massachusetts multi-family home that claimed four lives is now being discussed as reaffirmation of the need for fire sprinklers. Mr. Saadian explains that the one possible silver lining to come out of the tragic story is that the story is picking up some national attention, especially from fire safety advocacy groups such as Common Voices. Because fire sprinklers and other crucial fire safety systems truly do save lives, Mr. Saadian says that even only one new business or building owner taking actions to have these systems put in place really can make an important difference. He explains that the Fire Protection Group team is able to install systems in new buildings, existing buildings, and also carry out inspections of systems that are already in place:
- New Buildings – Mr. Saadian explains that his team of experienced engineers is able to draft designs for a system to meet the needs of new construction. He also notes that the Fire Protection Group team would not be complete without former LAFD officials Al Hernandez and Bob Holloway, who can use their industry experience and bureaucratic connections to ensure that building plans do not get held up by red tape.
- Existing Buildings – Mr. Saadian notes that, because the majority of new buildings are constructed with fire sprinklers installed, the buildings that are likely most at risk are older ones that were constructed before the necessity of fire sprinklers was fully understood. He explains that his team can incorporate the existing infrastructure, as well as aesthetic considerations important to the client, to craft the best system possible.
- Inspections – Another danger that building owners run into is that they may not be aware that, after these systems are installed, they need regular inspections to ensure that they are working properly. Mr. Saadian explains that, in addition to inspecting sprinkler systems, Fire Protection Group can also inspect fire alarm systems that are essential for letting occupants know that they must evacuate the building.
Mr. Saadian and the rest of the Fire Protection Group Inc. team are committed to spreading the message of fire safety, so that many of these truly preventable deaths can be stopped.
