Fire Protection in Los Angeles is More Important than Ever
Fire protection in Los Angeles has always been a major concern, but it’s becoming ever more serious. The truth is that, whether we care to acknowledge it or not, Southern California is primarily a desert climate. Moreover, the seemingly increasing occurrence of extreme weather events – such as a very wet winter followed by an unusually hot and dry summer – means that the ever-present threat of a fire is only going to increase. Fire Protection Group, Inc. is here to provide owners and managers of all kinds of business and residential properties with consulting services that can help a property stand up to the fire safety challenges posed by being in the Greater Los Angeles Area.
The cold hard reality about fighting the ravages of heat is that there are many facets of protecting a property and its occupants against the threat of a fire. First, it’s important to ensure that people inside a building are aware of a fire the moment it starts and, then, able to safety exit the property. Fire alarms, clearly marked and easily accessible exits, and fire escapes when necessary are frequently crucial.
Another important element is prevention and, when that fails, stopping fires early on, or at least slowing down their progress so that firefighters will be able to save the property from complete destruction. Fire extinguishers can obviously stop small fires from turning into conflagrations and fire sprinklers can usually slow the progress of a fire significantly enough to improve a building’s chances of survival. For taller buildings, standpipes that bring water to the higher stories for firefighters to access can make all the difference.
