Fire Safety Incredibly Important For Older Adults, Says Fire Protection Group, Inc.

LOS ANGELES, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The exact statistics may vary depending on the source, but it's accepted knowledge that Americans who are senior citizens lose their lives at a disproportionate rate due to residential fires. The National Fire Protection Association, for example, states that adults "over the age of 65 are more than twice as likely to die in home fires as the average person" in its 2010 Characteristics of Home Fire Victims report. Knowledgeable fire safety contractors with hundreds of years of collective experience in the industry, Fire Protection Group, Inc. believes that properly installed fire alarm and fire sprinkler systems can prevent the majority of these deaths. The Fire Protection Group, Inc. staff has worked extensively installing both commercial and residential fire sprinkler systems and thinks that many would be surprised at how affordable and easy the installation of these systems tend to be.

Current or future homeowners who are senior citizens, expect to still be in the home when they are over the age of 65, or plan on living with older adults can save lives by installing fire sprinkler systems during the construction of their home or retrofitting their current property. While the exact cost of a fire sprinkler system in a home varies due to specific circumstances, the American Fire Sprinkler Association estimates their average cost to be one to two dollars per square foot for new construction projects and only a little more for retrofits at two to three dollars per square foot covered.

When installing home fire sprinklers, Fire Protection Group, Inc.'s customers benefit from the experience of the fire safety contractors. The Fire Protection Group, Inc. team has installed an incredible range of residential sprinkler systems, sufficiently learning how to make the process as efficient as possible. Moreover, they have had to meet a diverse set of needs for their many clients, meaning that Fire Protection Group, Inc. is an incredibly valuable resource for homeowners who have questions about or request home systems that are specifically crafted to help save the lives of older Americans.
