LOS ANGELES, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- To the average layperson, a fire may seem completely random in the way it spreads and grows. Yet, as with anything, an in-depth understanding of fires allows one to identify patterns and trends in the way they wreak havoc upon buildings that may not be properly protected. When designing and installing custom sprinkler systems for local businesses and building owners, the experienced staff at Los Angeles based Fire Protection Group Inc. use their years of both academic and field experience to inform their implementation of the best possible anti-fire measures.
To be more specific, the FPG Inc. team draws on two types of expertise:
- Academic Practice – When many people think of a fire sprinkler system, they simply see it as a set of sprinklers sticking out from the ceiling and assume that it is simply a matter of installing the correct equipment. Yet, a successful fire protection system requires a complex web of pipes and pumps that need to be designed to fit into each individual space. George Saadian, FPG Inc.'s general manager, began his training at UCLA where he studied fire protection engineering. Since then, he has worked tirelessly to not only design the very best sprinklers, but has also helped revise the fire codes and standards that businesses abide by. Because of his unique understanding of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) code, he is able to train other Fire Protection Group employees to be experts at inspecting buildings in regards to the NFPA's strict standards. Mr. Saadian also leads Fire Protection Group's team of engineers in designing a custom system for each customer that maximizes the fire preparedness of that individual space. Fire Protection Group Inc. handles every step of the design, fabrication, and installation processes rather than sending work out to sub-contractors who may misapply client instructions.
- Field Experience – A company specializing in fire protection services would not be complete without team members who actually worked in the ranks of fire departments to get an up close and personal view of what a fire can do. After retiring from his post as the head of construction services at the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD), Captain Bob Holloway decided to continue using his years of experience to protect Los Angeles residents and their businesses from fire by joining Fire Protection Group Inc. Also working with Fire Protection Group is former LAFD Chief Al Hernandez. In addition to bringing extensive fire protection experience to the table, Chief Hernandez is able to serve as a valuable mediator between businesses and city and state bureaucracies.
A successful fire protection company cannot be made up of employees who only learned how to do their job in the classroom, yet it cannot be comprised only of people who learned the job in the field. Only with both sets of voices can a company truly cover all of the bases and provide their customers with thorough, properly thought-out fire protection.
