Article on Recent Pasadena Courtroom Fire Highlights the Effectiveness of Fire Alarm Systems, Says Fire Protection Group Inc

According to the article published July 27 on My News LA, a fire that broke out on the third floor of the Pasadena courthouse was contained and extinguished by the city’s fire department before it caused major damage throughout the building. The article also notes that no one was in the building at the time of the fire, and it was a fire alarm system that tipped off fire fighters so they could arrive at the site before it was too late. According to George Saadian, the head engineer at Fire Protection Group Inc., this is a case where a large amount of damage was prevented by properly maintained fire safety systems. The firm also notes that, while municipal buildings may likely be more cognizant of the need to inspect their safety systems, private businesses should also look at this case as a real world example of how proper fire preparedness can save a building in the long term. While it was specifically the fire alarm that prevented further damage in this case, Fire Protection Group adds that there are several other important fire safety elements that they install and inspect for all types of L.A. area businesses.

  • Fire Sprinklers – While many people assume fire sprinklers are meant to put out fires, and in some cases they can, Fire Protection Group notes that their real purpose is to contain the fire and limit its advance before firefighters arrive on the scene. The Fire Protection Group engineering team, led by Mr. Saadian, is capable of designing, fabricating, and installing custom sprinkler systems for a wide variety of building sizes and needs.
  • Standpipes – While rarely noticed or thought of when thinking of fire safety elements, Fire Protection Group stresses just how important properly functioning standpipes can be. The standpipes are responsible for getting pressurized water to the sprinkler systems, especially those that are on higher floors of buildings. While many buildings already have these pipes in place, testing is often neglected, notes Fire Protection Group. They explain that, without regular testing to ensure the pipes are pumping water up at the proper pressure, the fire sprinklers may not function the way they are supposed it in the event of a fire.

Fire Protection Group notes that it was not luck that allowed the Pasadena courthouse fire to be extinguished, but diligent planning on the part of the building manager and the consistent hard-work of the firefighters at the scene.
