“During the Pagami Creek fire, George Carlson and his company, Wildfire Protection Systems, came to our property during the most dangerous phase of the fire and turned on our system. He ran the system regularly and maintained it so that our property was fully protected during the most dangerous few weeks of the fire. As a seasonal property owner, there was real peace of mind knowing that we had done everything we could to protect our property from the fire — by installing the Wildfire Sprinkler system and then keeping it up and ready to go during the fire.” (Jim Carlen, St. Paul)
