Titusville, FL, June 13, 2022 – RUSH Facilities, LLC, is now one of just a few companies in the state of Florida with a UL Certified Lightning Protection Professional on staff, allowing the company to expand its services to include lightning protection system installation, inspection, and compliance. Josh Pagan, a certified electrical contractor who leads the RUSH Facilities Electrical Division, received his UL certification on May 7, 2022.
Lightning protection systems are used to protect structures of all kinds from damage due to lightning strikes. After installation, regular inspection and maintenance of these systems ensures proper functionality and compliance. An UL Lightning Protection Professional Certification proves that an individual has been independently certified by UL to possess the critical knowledge and skills required to work on projects in the lightning protection systems industry. The goal of this certification is to improve the safety and performance of lightning protection systems through a more qualified workforce.
“As Josh worked with our different clients and the Construction side of RUSH, he began to see a need for lightning protection installers and maintainers in our area,” said Bob Dillow, President of RUSH Facilities, LLC. “Brevard County and Central Florida annually experience one of the highest numbers of lightning strikes per square mile in the world. We frequently see improperly installed and maintained lightning protection systems on our clients’ buildings, putting their buildings and equipment at risk. Josh obtaining his UL Lightning Protection Professional Certification enables RUSH Facilities to provide lightning protection services to our clients in a timely and cost-effective manner, helping them reduce the risk to their buildings and equipment.” said Bob Dillow, President of RUSH Facilities, LLC.
