October is National Fire Safety Awareness Month

There is a reason why MASONRY is the material of choice for most Firehouses.

Those that protect others for a living, also know how to protect themselves.  As part of their rigorous training, firefighters ensure that they wear proper fire resistant clothing. They understand the importance of education in fire prevention and the necessary tactical strategies needed in combating the fiercest of flames.

When it comes to firehouse structures, Architects readily choose materials that will further protect them in structures built with materials that have the highest fire rating possible.

They know that their lives are at risk every day. There is no reason to house these heroes in any material other than masonry.

When it comes to Fire Safety, we trust what they know.

In recognition of National Fire Safety Awareness month and the Heroes that protect us against the ravages of those unforgiving flames, we would like to thank our Masonry Heroes, the Firefighters.
