Our Story

  • Our primary objective is to exceed your expectations and keep you as a customer for life.

Founded in 2006 by Michael O’Rourke and Steven Schlesinger, Tri State Fire Protection and Tri State Hood & Duct grew to become a leading provider of fire protection and life safety services in New England. In 2016, Tri State Fire acquired O’Connell Fire Protection, a leading fire protection company founded by Bob O’Connell.

In recognition of the company’s reputation across New England, Tri State was acquired by Impact Fire Services, a leading self-perform operator headquartered outside Austin, Texas in March of 2018. Impact Fire currently operates 18 district offices across 10 states, maintaining a strong local presence in each market it serves. Our partnership has thrived given our similar core values, particularly our commitment to our customers and employees. Acknowledging that many of our customers have voiced confusion regarding our name, we decided to take on the name of our parent company Impact Fire, starting in 2019.

With over 350 technicians and 200+ years of industry experience, Impact Fire offers comprehensive fire protection and life safety services across a variety of industries, including Education, Government, Hospitality, Industrial, Property Management, Restaurant, and Retail. We pride ourselves on the long-term relationships we have developed with our customers by always putting them first, no exceptions. We also invest in our team offering training and mentorship and competitive compensation and superior benefits.

We understand the demands placed on business owners and managers to maintain compliance and protect their employees, customers, and property can be somewhat overwhelming. Our goal is to offer a unique program for each customer’s particular challenges. With one phone call, our customers are able to address all of their fire protection needs, knowing that we are committed to meet or exceed their expectations every day.
