about_us_thumbFounded in 2006 by Michael O’Rourke and Steven Schlesinger, Tri State Fire Protection, Tri State Hood & Duct and O’Connell Fire have together grown to become a leading provider of fire protection and life safety services in New England.
With over 6,500 customers, Tri State offers comprehensive fire protection services across a variety of industries, including Retail, Restaurant, Property Management, Hospitality, Industrial, Education, and Government. 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.
In recognition of our reputation across New England, Tri State was acquired by Impact Fire Services, a leading self-perform operator headquartered outside Austin, Texas. The Tri State team is excited to have partnered with an equally high-quality fire and life safety service organization. Impact Fire Services and its sister company Academy Fire Life Safety, a provider of national account services, are owned by AI Fire. Together we are committed to providing a model offering that balances the “best of both worlds in fire protection” – capabilities and scale with personal service and accountability.
