The biggest fire in years, devours a building in downtown Concord and displaces 250 next door. Arson Confirmed In Massive Concord Apartment Fire.
Surveillance video shows a person entering the closed construction site of a huge Concord apartment complex before the glow of flames appears. (5/30/18).
More big fire marked the ninth time since 2012 that a fire broke out at a housing construction site in the East Bay, leaving housing developers on edge. Many of the blazes have been intentionally set in the middle of the night, and in two cases surveillance video captured suspects, according to investigators. All these Construction fires have raised concerns that a serial arsonists may be targeting housing projects all around the USA for personal or political reasons.
M-Fire Suppression presents The MFI Red Zone Tour is part of the Resilient Movement to educate and help our building industry professionals defend themselves from things like fire and radical wet weather that are impacting their ability to remain sustainable.
Our first MFI Red Zone BisNow event will feature Jeff Hutchens, Senior Director for Safety & Health at AvalonBay Communities. Jeff will discuss the company he works for and award winning fire elimination program that is defending their buildings from total loss from fire during construction. He will discuss the multiple facets of their proactive fire elimination plan, then break it down to explain the Mighty Fire Breaker™ portion that is more than just awareness or notification tech, it breaks the free radicals during fire to limit loss. Jeff and AVB know firsthand how the firefighters stand little or no chance by the time they get on site in a raw lumber building fire. The Mighty Fire Breaker clean fire chemistry has afforded us at Avalon Bay Communities the comfort that this Applied Fire Science will lower our loss on every wood framed project we build going forward.
Jeff is off to NYC after this BisNow event to join his team at the ENR award ceremony to except another award for their Fire Elimination Plan. see link
