LOS ANGELES, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As we approach the fire season, Fire Protection Group, Inc. understands why owners of buildings may be more worried about their property than usual. According to a recent editorial in the Los Angeles Times, there has been growing controversy regarding a draft report on minimizing the dangers of wildfires from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire). According to the Times, the report was strongly criticized as scientifically invalid, not by an independent agency but by the National Park Service and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. The controversy is likely to sow concern among property owners, which is why Fire Protection Group Inc., a key provider of numerous services in the area of fire prevention and safety, including fire watch for California, would like to remind the public that steps can be taken to maximize fire safety and limit liability.

Much of the controversy between the state and federal agencies seems to focus on the issue of fire breaks in forested areas. Experts at other agencies appear to believe that fires could easily cross over the breaks proposed by the Cal Fire report, endangering animals, buildings, and people near these areas. Fire Protection Group, Inc. understands that this kind of dissension might well fray the nerves of people who have invested in buildings located near areas prone to fire, and there's no denying the fact that fire is a very danger to all of us, as well as a mounting environmental concern. Compliance with such matters as NFPA 25 codes has never been more important.

While there may not be much property owners can do to get public agencies to work together in harmony, they can at least protect their property and ensure the safety of its occupants in the event of a fire.
