What are Fire Protection Services?

fire protection services

Fire protection services are a key safety component in the operation of a business. Not only does fire protection prevent damage and serious harm to customers and employees, but in most cases, it is legally required according to local laws. Fire protection services include engineering, designing, and installing fire protection systems and equipment. The fire protection required or suggested for a building varies but could consist of fire suppression systems, fire alarms, fire extinguishers, fire sprinklers, or a combination of these systems. Fire protection services like those provided by Keystone Fire Protection Co. also include the inspection, testing, repair and maintenance of fire protection systems. Fire protection services should include everything needed to keep a property safe from fire and comply with local and national regulatory codes and standards.

Choose a Company Recognized by the HIRE Vets Program

Keystone Fire Protection Co. is incredibly proud to be recognized by the HIRE Vets Program with a gold medallion.

These criteria include the percent of veterans hired, percent of current veteran employees, the number of employees recruiting veterans, the development of programs designed to support veteran employees, and many more. As a veteran, you should be interested in working for a company that has won a HIRE award because they not only are actively pursuing veteran employees but also retaining those employees, as well as seeking to advertise themselves as friendly towards veterans.
