LOS ANGELES, June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In Brazil, the streets are buzzing with excitement for the World Cup. While travelers from around the globe are filling stadiums in the hopes that their team will bring pride to their home country, building and fire safety inspectors will have other concerns on their minds. Brazil's World Cup preparations have garnered a lot of publicity for going over-budget and behind schedule – a contrast with the extremely reliable fire safety efforts of George Saadian and his team at Fire Protection Group, Inc. The company that is celebrated throughout Southern California for providing fire sprinklers, alarms, and other fire safety products is equally adept at consulting and design for fire prevention systems. Whether you're the manager of a residential or commercial building in need of standpipes or an event manager looking to ensure the safety of your patrons, you can always count on FPG, Inc.
2014 World Cup preparations have been plagued by setbacks, but the latest concerns over the Arena das Dunas are also among the most serious. Firefighters say that a safety inspection that should have been done on site last Tuesday was never authorized. The issue is similar to that of the Arena de Sao Paulo, the stadium where the opening game of the tournament between Brazil and Croatia took place. The soccer-centric website Goal reports that the Sao Paulo fire department refused to sign off on its temporary seating, leading FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) to recall a number of tickets that had been sold, forcing fans to exchange their tickets and stadium capacity to fall from 68,000 to a little over 60,000.
Thus far, the grumbles of annoyed futbol fans has been the most serious incident World Cup organizers have had to deal with so far – a trend that will hopefully continue. Yet, the delays and confusion during preparation is a reminder that the threat of uncontrolled fire must always be carefully considered. Fortunately, in Southern California, property owners and event planners can always count on the team at FPG, Inc. for services like fire watch and consulting, as well as design and installation of prevention measures like alarms and sprinklers.
FPG, Inc. staff of fire protection veterans offers a combined 200-plus years of experience in the fire protection industry. In fact, Mr. Saadian's colleagues include such similarly renowned experts as former LAFD Chief Al Hernandez and retired LAFD Captain Bob Holloway. The result is that clients, including government municipalities, inspectors and officials consistently experience the best service possible.
As we gather around our TV screens to watch the World Cup matches in Brazil this year, we can only hope that they aren't halted by the spark of another type of match. However, if you're planning a World Cup viewing party in or around Los Angeles, remember to contact the team at FPG, Inc. to provide an environment for your guests that is safe from the dangers of uncontrolled fire.
