In Periods of Severe SoCal Drought, Fire Protection Group, Inc. is a Crucial Resource

Climatologists predict 2014 will continue California's record drought, making the efforts of Fire Protection Group, Inc. more essential than ever.

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- USA Today reports that 2013 was California's driest year on record – and 2014 shows no signs of relief coming anytime soon. It is in these trying times that the effort and skill of true professionals is always appreciated, and for those seeking the best in fire alarm systems, fire watch, and much more, that means Fire Protection Group, Inc. As experts in fire sprinkler inspection as well as top-notch engineers, the respected name is fire protection, stands as an essential resource for Southern Californians looking to protect the people and property under their care. By adhering to the principles of "turn-key operation" in design of fire sprinkler systems, extinguishers and other products, FPG, Inc. makes fire safety as simple and efficient as possible.  

Although a drought emergency has not yet been officially declared, a lack of rain and snow this winter could bring about severe losses – as well as catastrophic wildfire. Even frequently lush San Francisco is seeing its driest year since records began during the Gold Rush year of 1849. These conditions pose a substantial threat to business and property owners, as powerful wildfires pose an increased threat – requiring the impeccably designed defenses of FPG, Inc.

In December, we saw an uncommon wildfire near Big Sur, and though the fire is now contained, it destroyed dozens of homes, forced about 100 evacuations and burned more than 900 acres. If, as predicted, this winter proves to be as dry as the past two, catastrophic wildfires will remain the greatest risk the state faces. "A couple of the state's most disastrous wildfire events occurred in Southern California in 2003 and 2007, following drought conditions," says Jeanine Jones, California Department of Water Resources deputy drought manager.   

Fortunately, while the dangers of wildfire are more apparent than ever before, our ability to defend against them has also become far more effective, thanks to FPG, Inc. As an organization that is fully committed to a long-term involvement in matters of fire prevention and security, they offer round-the-clock emergency service during the warranty period and afterward for maintenance, parts, repairs, inspections, alterations and emergencies.

At FPG, Inc., you'll find a team that has over 200 years of combined experience completing projects that range from sprawling university campuses to office buildings and residential buildings, skyscrapers and shopping centers. Their reputation and expertise has led the company to become a true leader in the fire protection industry, due in no small part to the skill of general manager George Saadian. Mr. Saadian has built a team that includes some of the top names in fire prevention, including retired LAFD chief Al Hernandez and retired LAFD captain Bob Holloway.

As Southern California sets out on another potentially record dry year — with no end to the uncharacteristic conditions in sight, L.A. area residents can take solace in knowing the world class fire protection team at FPG Inc. is on hand to provide truly invaluable assistance.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
