With Wildfires Causing Controversy Between Government Departments, Property Owners Need To Keep Their Guard Up

LOS ANGELES, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As we approach the fire season, Fire Protection Group, Inc. understands why owners of buildings may be more worried about their property than usual. According to a recent editorial in the Los Angeles Times , there has been growing controversy regarding a draft report on minimizing the dangers of wildfires from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire). According to the Times, the report was strongly criticized as scientifically invalid, not by an independent agency but by the National Park Service and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. The controversy is likely to sow concern among property owners, which is why Fire Protection Group Inc., a key provider of numerous services in the area of fire prevention and safety, including fire watch for California, would like to remind the public that steps can be taken to maximize fire safety and limit liability.

Much of the controversy between the state and federal agencies seems to focus on the issue of fire breaks in forested areas. Experts at other agencies appear to believe that fires could easily cross over the breaks proposed by the Cal Fire report, endangering animals, buildings, and people near these areas. Fire Protection Group, Inc. understands that this kind of dissension might well fray the nerves of people who have invested in buildings located near areas prone to fire, and there's no denying the fact that fire is a very danger to all of us, as well as a mounting environmental concern. Compliance with such matters as NFPA 25 codes has never been more important.

While there may not be much property owners can do to get public agencies to work together in harmony, they can at least protect their property and ensure the safety of its occupants in the event of a fire. FPG is a premier provider of complete fire safety and protection services for business and residential properties of all sizes. Its staff boasts a combined 200 years of experience. Founder and chief engineer George Saadian and retired Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Al Hernandez have consulted on innumerable projects and provided their expert advice, saving enormous expense and preventing injuries on a very large scale. Moreover, both men are supremely useful for builders and owners seeking to comply with state and local regulations as they have actually helped to revise many of the most crucial fire-related rules currently on the books.

Whether your business or residence requires assistance with such services as fire sprinkler systems, alarms, fire extinguishers, evacuation plans or fire escapes, these highly respected fire safety consultants will be able to take the lead on your entire fire safety regimen. If you believe that your home or business is vulnerable to a wildfire – and are concerned that state and federal agencies appear to be at loggerheads – give the experts at Fire Protection Group, Inc. a call to see about a free consultation.
