Santa Ana Winds Bring Fire Dangers But Fire Protection Group Inc. Reminds Us We're Far From Helpless

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Fire Protection Group Inc., providers of outstanding fire protection services for businesses and residences, has a thought for all who note with concern the yearly arrival of warm, dry Santa Ana winds which come and go with such alarming randomness each Southern California fall and winter. It's only natural to worry as the winds make fires of all kinds more likely. The good news is that the thoughtful use of outstanding protection systems backed up with such services as fire extinguisher inspection can protect businesses and homes; the trick is making sure these systems are properly installed, employed and NPFA 25 compliant.

Fire sprinkler systems are only the beginning of the turnkey assistance provided by Fire Protection Group, Inc. Headed by general manager and lead engineer George Saadian and former Los Angeles Fire Department chief Al Hernandez, Fire Protection Group Inc. suggests that those concerned about fire dangers any time of the year stop worrying and start acting to reduce their risk of a destructive fire, winds or no winds.

Few look forward to the yearly arrival of the fabled Santa Anas, but they are rather well known in popular culture. Famed hardboiled detective writer Raymond Chandler half-jokingly implied they encouraged bar fights and domestic homicides, and numerous songs and stories have suggested they can be hard on human relationships. Still, a bit of additional nervous energy is nothing compared to the risk of a serious fire. Business, and home owners whose property is located near brush especially need to pay special attention to doing whatever they can to make their buildings, and the people inside them, stay as safe from fires as possible.

It goes without saying that owners need to ensure that their properties are up to all local and state fire codes, but it sometimes may make sense to actually go beyond the measures that are legally mandated. As long time professionals from the fields of engineering and firefighting, Messrs. Saadian and Hernandez are in a special position to help owners of businesses and residences. Indeed, they have helped revise many of the fire safety codes currently in effect in California.  Still, fire safety goes far beyond simple compliance with the law. Their company provides complete turn-key assistance to owners on all matters relating to fire safety and prevention.
