Properly maintained fire sprinkler systems are crucial when it comes to preventing loss of life and property in the event of a fire.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2015
George Saadian, the general manager and lead engineer at Los Angeles fire safety firm Fire Protection Group, Inc., has long noted the importance of fire sprinkler systems in protecting both lives and property. This reality was backed up by an article published November 15th by Journal Online, which detailed two recent fires that were both found to be effectively controlled by fire sprinklers. The article explains that the two fires, one that began in a vehicle and another that originated from an oven, were both contained by overhead fire sprinkler units and then fully extinguished by firefighters when they arrived on the scene. According to Fire Protection Group Inc., and supported by the recent article, properly maintained fire sprinkler systems are crucial when it comes to preventing loss of life and property in the event of a fire.
- Saving Property – The article specifically notes that, while a combined total of $125,000 worth of property damage was caused by the two fires, this pales in comparison to the estimated $5 million in damages that was likely saved by the fire sprinkler systems. Fire Protection Group Inc. explains that they design, fabricate, and install all of their systems in-house, so they are able to charge reasonable rates, which appear even more sensible when weighed against the enormous costs typically inflicted by an out of control fire. They also note that, even if building managers or businesses have insurance to cover the potential costs of a fire, having advanced fire safety systems in place could drastically lower insurance rates.
- Saving Lives – While damage to a building can severely impact many livelihoods, Fire Protection Group Inc. explains that what’s most important is that no one is physically harmed. The article explains that no one was injured by the fires properly contained by the sprinklers, and it is impossible to know if anyone would have been injured if those sprinkler systems were not in place. Fire Protection Group Inc. explains that fire sprinkler systems not only help occupants of a building by allowing them more time to escape, they also control the fire so that firefighters have a much less dangerous task ahead of them when they have to extinguish the fire.
