Prior to B&D Fire Protection (“B&D”) were two fire alarm installers and managers who cared heavily about the Fire Protection and Alarm business. We noticed many poorly installed fire systems. Wiring was draped across ceilings, devices were mounted in locations not to code, devices were not set to the right candelas or wattages, etc. We also observed that many fire departments were not well trained in finding those deficiencies, so the system ended up getting green tagged and the end users got the short end of the stick. Observing that many fire alarm systems have been, and continue to be, installed incorrectly, we started B&D Fire Protection, LLC. Since our conception we have installed multi-million dollar systems throughout Arizona for some of the most prominent companies and facilities in Arizona and the United States (Peoria Unified School District (PUSD), Northern Arizona University (NAU), Glendale Union High School District (GUHSD), The Federal Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma Arizona, Yavapai College in Prescott, and many more.)
B&D Fire Protection, LLC is an Arizona company. We are a locally owned small business that started with a team of highly experienced fire alarm installation experts and have experienced positive growth. Ownership of the company consists of National Institute for the Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) certified level III, CSA Extinguishers, etc.
