Stockbridge, Ga. – December 14, 2017

Paul Davis of South Atlanta along with Paul Davis of North Atlanta recently hosted a live burn event for insurance professionals, property managers, facility and risk managers on December 12 at the Cobb County Fire Department Training Center in Marietta. The program was free of charge and featured a variety of experts in restoration, fire, insurance and textile industries as speakers on the topics of fire sprinkler systems, effects of fire and smoke on textiles, securing the scene, along with the process of insurance subrogation. Also, discussions were featured on the dangers of Christmas tree fires, and the behaviors of fire under accelerants, to name a few. A complimentary lunch was served to participants featuring local food truck vendors.

The live burn seminars and demonstrations included the fire department and individual outside structures set up like rooms in a house that were lit on fire from a variety of flammable materials. Fire department professionals extinguished and explained each burn. Participants participated in a Q&A along with discussions.

“We were pleased to present this unique event in the region. The generosity of the fire department afforded us the opportunity to help familiarize attendees with much needed information and to help them understand fire analysis and claims,” said Mickey McHenry, Paul Davis office owner. According to Jonathan DeBowles, Paul Davis’ Business Development Marketing Manager in South Atlanta, the event attracted local professionals who learned a lot from the speakers about statistical facts and the destructive properties of a house fire, plus how some areas of the home can reach up to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit in a fire. DeBowles added the Paul Davis office in South Atlanta plans to host additional live burn events in 2018. The local Paul Davis office is located at 201 Andrew Drive, #100 in Stockbridge.
