Arson

From 2003 to 2006, fire departments across the United States responded to almost 52,000 fires that were set intentionally. Over 1,000 people were injured and 377 people died in these fires, which caused a collective $900 million in property damage. The majority of all fires that cause serious damage are set in buildings that lack sufficient fire protection systems or automatic sprinkler systems. Although you may not think your building is at risk of arson, sadly, intentionally-set fires are all too common.

One of the most important ways to protect your property is through the installation and regular maintenance of a fire protection system.
