Fire Protection Company In Los Angeles Warns That Blazes Are A Perpetual Threat

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With the end of the summer fire season and the beginning of cooler fall weather, Southern Californians may tend to let down their guard when it comes to fire danger – a potentially tragic mistake.  Global Fire Technologies, Inc., a fire protection company Los Angeles businesses have worked with for years, would like to remind the public that the threat of fire remains high year round. Thanks to an ongoing drought and the Greater Los Angeles area's characteristically dry climate, it is clear that buildings must fully comply with such standards as Reg 4 testing in order to be both safe and legally compliant. Indeed, such incidents as the recent Barrington Plaza high-rise fire in West Los Angeles, which seriously threatened the lives of a two year-old and her grandfather, point out the need for constant vigilance.

The Barrington Plaza, which was built in 1961, did not have a fire sprinkler system in place at the time of the fire. A well-installed and regularly inspected fire alarm in Los Angeles can make the difference between life and death in many cases. In the case of the Barrington Plaza, it can lead to a quicker and far safer evacuation.

While companies and owners of buildings have a legal and ethical obligation to ensure maximum safety for lives and property, they also have a right to be concerned with the fiscal bottom line. Global Fire Technologies, Inc. is known for helping its customers to maintain the highest possible level of safety and fire protection while also helping to keep costs under control.

The company attributes this level of performance and economic efficiency to its extremely high level of customer satisfaction; it boasts a retention rate of 95 percent among its returning customers. The human factor aside, nothing is more costly to a business's bottom line than a fire that rages out of control. From a strictly dollars-and-cents point of view, it therefore behooves all owners and managers of business and residential facilities to take every necessary step to reduce the threat of a fire.
