FireAvert Prevents Multifamily Property Fires in Texas
Updated: Apr 20
They say everything’s bigger in Texas. Well, thanks to FireAvert, Texas property management company BK Multifamily (formerly LBK Management) is keeping big problems from ever happening in the first place.
BK Multifamily installed FireAvert in about 300 multifamily units and we talked with Alvin Betham about how the experience has gone. He started by telling us about a few potential disasters averted.
“We had a few residents that left the stove on [and] FireAvert kicked in. It worked. It cut the stove off instantly. It probably would [have been] a major fire and burned down the building if FireAvert wasn’t there.”
Since installing FireAvert, Alvin hasn’t had to deal with any fires across all the units he oversees. He was quick to mention how easy it’s been to use them, “You just plug it into an outlet. It’s maintenance-free, basically. There’s nothing for us to do. You don’t have to worry about anything catching fire with FireAvert because it shuts everything off. I would use it in my home.”
With years of experience managing properties, Alvin is no stranger to house fires: “Here, in Texas,” he told us, “we have a lot of building fires. If you’re using FireAvert, you won’t have that problem. You don’t have to rebuild a building from burning down, [or] doing the insurance claim on the building. So, it saves time, money, and probably a building from burning down.”
