L.A. is one of the world’s most exciting and most competitive cities in the nation. It’s also frequently hot and dry, and so fire is even more of a constant concern here than in many other cities. Fire Protection Group, Inc. is a known and respected leader in Los Angeles fire safety consulting. We’ve helped countless owners and managers of commercial and residential properties achieve full compliance with all relevant fire codes while also doing everything needed to ensure that lives and property are fully protected.
The fact of the matter is that every building is different and so it’s not possible to create a one-size-fits-all approach to ensuring a building’s security from the threat of a fire. Such factors as the size and the architectural layout of a structure can make an enormous difference. For example, many taller multistory buildings call for the use of standpipes. These pipes provide water on higher floors so that firefighters are able to access it quickly. It’s also important to ensure that occupants of a building are able to find exits easily, and also to provide a fire alarm so they need they need to leave the building in the first place.
There’s no getting around it, in Los Angeles or anywhere else, fire safety consulting is no simple matter. Fortunately, our team is comprised of some of the most noted figures in the Los Angeles firefighting community. George Saadian is our lead engineer and general manager, and he is a highly regarded expert and author in the field who has helped to revise a great many of the fire codes. The same is true of retired chief Al Hernandez, a respected veteran of the Los Angeles Fire Department. Finally, before retiring in 2012, Captain Bob Holloway was in charge of construction services for the LAFD, so he knows how to make a building code compliant and completely safe like very few people do.
