The company provides inspection, maintenance, repair and installation services for portable fire extinguishers, fire sprinklers, fire alarms and emergency lighting to national chains and the healthcare, industrial, education, commercial and hospitality industries.
AI Fire serves over 10,000 customers through approximately 450 employed technicians and 20 district offices, complemented by a trusted network of subcontractor partners.
