Nevada Statewide Fire Protection Project Coordinator Monica Caldwell spearheaded another charitable effort, for the families and children of serving military members stationed overseas. Monica and her daughters Angela and Ariel delivered the gifts and proceeds of this holiday season effort to the families of Nellis Air Force Base.
In Las Vegas and the surrounding communities, there is an ongoing effort to update and upgrade health care and assisted living facilities' fire protection systems. Troy Robinson sees the retrofit of sprinkler systems and related fire protection equipment as a major undertaking in the region for the foreseeable future. Another concern is the connection between the upgrade of fire protection systems to meet insurance company requirements, specifically in the area of continuing general liability insurance for structures and facilities.
What trends are seen upcoming for the Nevada Statewide Fire Protection office? Troy Robinson predicts Radio Monitoring will be a key growth area in the future. The Nevada SFP (Western States Fire Protection) office was the first branch with a wholly owned, dedicated radio monitoring station system, which has been in place for over a year. Troy also expects another important segment will be the corrosion inspection and monitoring of sprinkler systems that are approaching the end of service life, that will result in a significant amount of remediation work.
