The Yosemite Rim Fire Serves As A Stark Reminder Of The Importance Of Fire Safety

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For residents throughout Southern California, the impeccable reputation of Fire Protection Group, Inc. serves as a great comfort and a point of tremendous pride for the company's general manager and lead engineer George Saadian. With decades of experience, FPG has provided fire sprinkler, pumps, and alarm systems and many other services that protect individual residences, private businesses and California's beautiful natural environment. The legacy of the company, and their work regarding fire pumps testing and other essential prevention needs, is put in particularly clear focus as clean-up efforts of the Yosemite National Park hit a potential snag due to the Federal Government's shut-down.

The Rim Fire, so named for its position mainly along the rim of Yosemite National Park, has burned more than 257,000 acres and is 92% contained, according to Fox News. This is good news for the many who have been affected by the largest forest fire ever recorded in the Sierra Nevada mountain range; however, for many federal workers, the most daunting work is still ahead. Now, with the recent government shutdown, concern is growing that firefighters and emergency response teams will be low on cash and essential resources. With government services unreliable and the risk of wildfires only increasing, the team at Fire Protection Group, Inc. is as committed as ever to providing round-the-clock emergency services and prevention that keeps Southern Californians safe from fire risks.

Due to the state's many densely populated areas and propensity for drought, fire safety has always been a particularly significant issue in California – a fact that George Saadian knows all too well. For over three decades, Mr. Saadian has been working in the field of fire protection, and in that time has garnered a record of effective service, illustrated by his many published articles on the subject of fire protection. Further still, Mr. Saadian has even rewritten numerous National Fire Protection Association codes in order to enhance their efficacy in preventing fire hazards, among other accolades.

Though the Rim Fire has been contained for many weeks now, around 287 firefighters still remain, cleaning up and containing host spots, work that the volatile Federal Government may not currently be prepared to accomplish. "It will be difficult for teams to purchase supplies and equipment," said Jerry Snyder, public affairs officer for the Stanislaus National Forest. "Permission can be granted, but there isn't a budget to purchase necessary materials beyond what they already have on hand."

For the many businesses and residential homes in the area, the news of low supplies will certainly be frustrating and disappointing. Yet, Los Angeles residents can take heart in knowing some of LAFD's finest firefighters, like Captain Bob Holloway, and Chief Al Hernandez are now working to provide truly effective fire prevention, consulting and emergency products as key members of the FPG team.
