Sylmar Condo Fire Reminds of the Importance of Emergency Safety Measures

Fire Protection Group, Inc.'s points to the importance of effective fire prevention in protecting residents of a San Fernando Valley complex

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This year, the challenges of fire safety have become particularly pronounced in the Los Angeles area, making the commercial fire sprinklers and other safety measures provided at Fire Protection Group, Inc. particularly noteworthy. The company provides numerous services, including fire pump testing, consulting, design and more, which can be an important asset to property owners in the increasingly fire-prone region. FPG, Inc. can install fire alarms, sprinklers, and standpipes  that can ensure your property is protected when uncontrolled fires break out, including events like the recent event at a Sylmar area condo complex.

CBS Los Angeles recently reported on a fire that broke out at an area condo that quickly grew to engulf a two story, four unit complex. Fire crews arrived on the scene shortly after 2 AM and, despite the scope of the blaze, the crews were able to avoid serious injury among residents or fire department personnel – a fact that can largely be credited to the effective fire prevention methods used at the facility. "Neighbors, who were awakened by properly functioning smoke alarms, had already escaped their homes unscathed prior the Fire Department's arrival," said fire department spokesman Brian Humphrey.

While it is undoubtedly a relief that the fire could be efficiently and effectively contained, the situation was not without incident. One firefighter suffered an injury to his face, and was transported to a local hospital in fair condition. Meanwhile, a resident also suffered a minor burn to his foot, and eight other residents were displaced from their homes. Damage estimates from the fire are still being totaled. However, it's clear that, even in the best case scenario, there is no more cost-effective option than optimal fire safety equipment that prevents these issues from occurring to begin with. That's why so many property owners and business managers throughout Southern California have chosen to protect their property and investments with FPG, Inc.

Led by their general manager and chief engineer George Saadian, the FPG, Inc. team stands head and shoulders above the competition. Mr. Saadian himself has been a top name in fire protection for over three decades, and at the acclaimed firm, he has surrounded himself with likeminded professionals like retired LAFD Captain Bob Holloway and Chief Consultant Al Hernandez. Altogether, they bring a stellar record of success in providing around-the-clock emergency services to their L.A.-based clients, including fire safety equipment, inspection, consultancy, and more.

The recent condominium fire in Sylmar is a reminder that an uncontrolled blaze can occur at any time, but the relative lack of severe and permanent damage in this instance illustrates just how effective fire prevention methods can be when designed and installed by experienced professionals. To protect your property and those under your care from the ravages of fire, or for any other information about the life-saving work at Fire Protection Group, Inc., please call 888-251-3488 or visit www.firesprinkler.com.
