Life is very important to me. I am one of those people who when I watch the news and see all the tragedy, it affects me on a very deep level. I am a Christian, and I just wonder about the people who have been involved in those tragedies. I am also a business owner, and that is why I want to make sure that the people who are in my building are protected from tragedy as much as I can help it. I have a company that provides fire extinguisher inspection in California come in and check all of our fire extinguishers out along with our sprinkler systems to help with this.
Because we are in California, fire probably scares us a bit more than it would someone in a state where fire and drought are not two things that happen on a regular basis. We have to be very careful, which is why I hire the best of the best to ensure that we are going to be okay if a fire would happen to occur at our building. Seeing the devastation of what fire can bring is what made me want to do this, and I have actually talked several colleagues who own their own businesses in doing this too.
Champion Fire Protection comes out and checks every fire extinguisher that we have. Since we are a manufacturing plant, that is quite a lot! They also check our sprinkler systems, and that is quite valuable, as I found out. When they inspected one a couple of years ago, they found that it would have malfunctioned if it had been needed. Thankfully, they were able to fix it. I am glad that we have what we need should a fire happen, but I am also thankful that we have never needed them too!
