The Colby Fire is Another Indicator of the Importance of Fire Prevention at FPG, Inc.

The Fire Protection Group, Inc. team provides Southern Californians with the measures they need to defend against an increased threat of wildfire.

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- George Saadian and his team at Fire Protection Group, Inc. know that fire prevention requires constant vigilance, as the threat of wild fire can come from almost anywhere. For years, their reputation has grown, due in large part to the expertise they've show while providing fire sprinklers and other defensive measures to government offices and private properties alike. In fact, for fire alarms, extinguishers and even NFPA25 Testing, those with an interest in protecting their investments and those under their care trust FPG, Inc. first and foremost.

A few weeks ago, residents near the San Gabriel Mountains learned of the danger posed by wildfire firsthand, as they found their homes and property threatened by a fire just outside of Glendora and Azusa – about 25 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles. The three young men who were charged with setting the infamous Colby fire – named for the trail where it was said to have been built – pled not guilty earlier this month, according to reports from United Press International. While it is as yet unknown how their story will unfold, what is certain is the damage that was done by the blaze.

The Washington Post reports that the fire burned about 1,709 acres by Thursday night, consuming five residences as well as other structures. While it is never wise (and often illegal) for inexperienced individuals to build a fire, this winter's unusually hot, dry conditions in Southern California have exacerbated the danger immensely, making the efforts of skilled fire safety professionals more necessary than ever. Fortunately for Southern Californians, the region is home to fire expert George Saadian and his world-class team at FPG, Inc.
