The Ranchero Road bridge fire might tragically end the hopes of prosperity for residents of Hesperia, serving as a reminder of the importance of FPG, Inc.'s fire prevention.
LOS ANGELES, May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In early May, the torch of a construction worker sparked a fire on the temporary wooden frame of a new bridge to the desert town of Hesperia north of San Bernardino. The situation led to the closing of the freeway while firefighters worked to douse the flames-and many irritated travelers heading to and from Las Vegas. For residents of Hesperia, though, the effects of the fire might prove to be profoundly more tragic, serving as a poignant reminder of the need for fire safety services provided at Fire Protection Group, Inc. Within the fire protection industry, FPG, Inc. has quickly become a global leader by providing services like fire alarm systems, extinguishers, and much more. However, their services go far beyond design and engineering and NFPA25 testing. FPG, Inc. also supports their customers with services like fire watch, inspection of fire extinguishers and stand pipes, and consulting-services that can prove invaluable for those looking to avoid the devastating effects of out-of-control fire.
For many Los Angelenos, Interstate 15 is known foremost as the path to entertainment and luxury in Las Vegas. However, for the town of Hesperia, it was something more-the main artery to the economic hub of L.A. Now, because of the devastating fire on the new Ranchero Road bridge, the hope of renewed economic prosperity in the Southern California town has been dashed. The bridge was expected to serve as a connection to the town for the many commuters between Sin City and the City of Angels, with restaurants, motels and gas stations providing much-needed income to the small desert town. "The bridge was supposed to help the community at this end of the desert," said Caltrans spokeswoman Michelle Profant. "They'll have to go back to the way things were."
At FPG, Inc., the dedication to reliable, effective fire prevention starts at the top, with general manager and lead engineer George Saadian. The renowned fire safety expert has surrounded himself with equally dedicated professionals like retired LAFD Chief Al Hernandez and Captain Bob Holloway. Together, they share expertise with the Southern California community that can save time and money for their customers, as well as the lives of those under their care.
As much as we respect and admire firefighters, the truth is that all-too-often, once a fire breaks out, it is already too late to salvage property or in some, cases, save lives. While the economic dreams of Hesperia's residents may be postponed indefinitely, we can only hope that this situation serves as a reminder of the importance of protection from the dangers of wildfire, and the invaluable fire prevention efforts at Fire Protection Group, Inc. If you are a building owner or property manager, don't leave your future to chance, trust Fire Protection Group, Inc. to fire-proof your property with their unparalleled skill.
