How Modern Technology Can Help Prevent Fires Outdoors

fcam2In previous times, outdoor fire protection had been quite a challenge.

A good example for this can be forests where visual spotting of fires by guards high up in a tower had been the only way of fire detection.

But of course, forests are not the only locations that can be at the risk for fires. Think about any sorts of outdoor spaces where reliable fire detection in the past had been a problem, from soccer stadiums to parking lots or beach resorts, just to name a few examples.

In recent times however, new technology has emerged that is now making outdoor fire detection a lot easier. Fire detection cameras can now detect fires in all those places where conventional smoke alarms and other fire detection systems will not work.

Digital fire cameras are essentially normal video cameras that are equipped with special software for image analyses. The software can spot fires from the view of the camera in real time, with modern fire cameras being able to detect a fire less than 20 seconds from when it breaks out.

But the ability of fire cameras to detect fires where it hadn’t been possible in previous times isn’t the only advantage. For industrial, commercial and residential use, implementing a fire camera into an existing CCTV system is also very easy. One can simply replace existing video cameras with a fire camera so that the new device can then also function as a normal CCTV camera, in addition to its fire detecting abilities. Moreover, fire cameras work entirely automatically and once installed don’t need any supervision or maintenance.

Fire cameras may not be able to prevent fires outdoors. But they can spot fires quickly and can alert responders automatically which greatly helps keep damages from fires at the minimum.


Getting a Personal Fitness Trainer

Personal Trainer

If you ask me, there is more to selecting a good fitness gym than it appears. It’s really not so much about what type of fitness equipment a gym has to offer and it certainly is also not so much about the normally very small difference when it comes to gym membership costs.

For me, the most important criterium when selecting a gym is what the gym can actually offer that will *really* benefit my needs and requirements.

And one of the most important things to me is that I know that I have qualified help with my routines since, well, I am not a fitness expert and I guess that most people are not. They simply want to get fit and in shape like I am.

There are several ways to go about this.

You choose a gym that offers courses where you can join up with a number of like-minded people together with a good trainer. This is always good fun since it can also be a good way to socialize with people.

Another good option is finding a gym where they can give you a personal trainer. This guy (or gal) can then help you with your exercise routines and depending on what you want to do can even lay out a plan so you can reach your goal effectively.

Yes, it may be the case that a personal trainer may cost you more than a simple gym membership, but this is where you need to take the real benefit into account. Simply going into a gym and then not knowing what to do is really pretty worthless, the same would be the case if you go to your gym and then start doing random exercises which won’t even help you with your fitness goals. The trainer can help you to spend your time in the gym a lot better!

So, if you’re like me and want to maximize your free time to do something good for your health and fitness, consider whether a personal trainer wouldn’t be the much better choice!

The Singing Waiters

It was at Mary Jo’s wedding where I had pleasure to see The Singing Waiters for the first time. As soon as The Singing Waiters started with their amazing performance, I knew that I needed to convince Jackie to book those guys for her own wedding reception.

Jackie was at first a little upset because she had already planned everything in detail. So here was I, basically telling her to scratch whatever she thought about for her reception’s musical entertainment and get The Singing Waiters instead. She also seemed a little upset at the idea that The Singing Waiters would cost a little more than band she was about to hire.

This is when I told her that it doesn’t make any sense to me that she spent a fortune on everything else but wants to save some money on their music. I told her that is often the music which can make or break such an event and that I really don’t think it’s very smart trying to save right there.

She was still a little uncertain about my proposal until she did a little research on their own about The Singing Waiters. Fortunately, it didn’t take long for her to change her opinion and she is now absolutely agreeing with my stance on this.

In case you don’t know who The Singing Waiters are: those guys are the United Kingdom’s best surprise entertainers by a long shot. They are incredibly popular in all the major cities in the UK. In other words, The Singing Waiters would be best choice for every type of family events like weddings or birthdays. If you see them like I did, you will understand why The Singing Waiters are so popular today.
