News Stories Raise Fire Concerns, But The Best Solution Is Taking The Correct Precautions, Says Fire Protection Group, Inc.

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fire and other dangers are always a major concern, especially in Southern California. Fire Protection Group, Inc. is here to help businesses and individuals minimize that danger with highly informed consultation and leading edge fire protection services. Still, two recent news items are prime examples of how the media can put their focus on issues that may or may not be exaggerated but are, at the very least, good reminders of the need for taking every reasonable precaution in regards to fire protection.

Specifically, local television stations were quick to run amateur video of a gigantic fireball that appeared last weekend in the Westchester area of West Los Angeles. The incident turned out to be result of an unplanned release of methane at a SoCalGas facility. While there was no damage or injury as a result of the release, the fireball understandably worried area residents.  On a much sadder note, the recent cardiac death of a 16 year-old soccer player in Carson was the focus of a harsh editorial in the Los Angeles Daily News. The paper's editors attacked alleged poor response times and cited alleged budgetary issues and "lack of transparency" by the current leadership of the Los Angeles Fire Department. While the specific incident did not involve a fire, the response time issue is certainly of concern to those worried about fire dangers.

While there is certainly reason for some concern arising from both of these instances, it's important to remember that media reports – even when based on fact – tend to have a magnifying effect on problems. In any case, the wisest plan of action is to be proactive when it comes to taking every reasonable precaution regarding fire prevention and fire safety, including ensuring that fire sprinkler systems, alarms, testing and other key fire safety components are up to date and fully functional.

Led by such experts as general manager and lead engineer George Saadian and retired fire department chief Al Hernandez, the staff at Fire Protection Group, Inc. provides everything organizations and individuals need to safeguard buildings and their occupants from fire dangers while also ensuring full compliance with all legal requirements when it comes to fire codes and other laws and regulations.  From initial consultations to providing any structural changes and equipment that may be needed, FPG, Inc. provides turnkey service to ensure companies are as safe and legally compliant as possible.

Concern about fire dangers can be a very good thing – but only if they lead to action. For more information about Fire Protection Group, Inc. please visit www.firesprinkler.com. Free consultations are available.
