Unseasonable Santa Ana Winds Increase the Need for George Saadian and Fire Protection Group, Inc.

As Santa Ana winds exacerbate hot, dry conditions in Southern California, the fire protection experts at FPG, Inc. continue to provide remarkably effective fire safety solutions.

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In the first weeks of 2014, Southern California got off to a hot, dry, and dangerous start. The region is notoriously prone to fire danger, but with even more extreme weather conditions than usual, meticulously designed fire alarms and other essential fire defense practices found at Fire Protection Group, Inc. are more necessary than ever. FPG, Inc. general manager and lead engineer George Saadian has built a team that consists of several top names in SoCal fire safety in key positions, including retired LAFD Captain Bob Holloway and former LAFD Chief Al Hernandez. With such impeccable references, it should come as no surprise that the fire sprinklers, pumps, and other resources at FPG, Inc. are always reliable in the event that wildfire threatens the most precious aspects of your life.

Southern Californians are used to autumn weather that is hot and gusty. Due to the Santa Ana winds that blow through the Southland, hot, dry winds have made for hazardous conditions, including an increased potential for wildfire. Commonly, the winds give way to cold, rainy weather throughout the winter months. Yet, USA Today reports that weather patterns this year are anything but common, as illustrated by red flag warnings for fire danger that were recently posted throughout Southern California as the Santa Ana winds continue to blow through the region – even well into January.

The National Weather Service has reported the possibility of northeasterly gusts of up to 60 mph in many regions of Southern California, as well as temperatures topping out in the low 80s – potentially record-breaking temps for some areas. The high risk has been severely exacerbated by California's record dry spell – in fact, Los Angeles has only received 22% of the expected rainfall since last January. While nature seems unlikely to offer a reprieve any time soon, Los Angelenos can rest easy knowing they can still protect their property and those under their care by trusting the fire safety professionals at Fire Protection Group, Inc.

At FPG, Inc., George Saadian leads a team that is highly experienced and fully committed to long-term involvement in the installation of fire safety services, as well as fire watch, inspection, and consulting. Over the course of their 200 years of combined experience, they have gained the respect of government officials, municipalities and inspectors. Further still, their simple "turn-key" operations have proven instrumental in ensuring fire prevention resources work when they are needed – every time.

"Southern California needs rain and it needs rain badly," says AccuWeather western weather expert Ken Clark. Though it is unknown if the harsh Santa Ana winds will ever usher in a moist, cooler and less fire-prone Southern California this winter, you can trust that Mr. Saadian and his team will remain on hand to provide their remarkable and storied fire safety expertise. For further information about the invaluable, life-saving services at FPG, Inc., please visit their website at www.firesprinkler.com or call them at 888-251-3488.
