Fire Protection Systems are essential for businesses of all sizes, from neighborhood restaurants to large corporations. Not only are these systems required by law, but they save lives, money, and property. Bob Sorensen began installing fire systems as a teenager during the 1960s and found he enjoyed it. He worked for three fire protection companies before starting FireGuard in 1993, and over the years his company has grown from Sorensen and a couple of part-timers to 50 employees, 30 service trucks, and an 18,000-square-feet building. Sorensen attributes FireGuard’s success to “Working hard, working honestly, and taking care of people.” This type of work involves being available to clients 24-7 throughout the year, including holidays. Sorensen recalls leaving home on Christmas Day to fix a sprinkler line. Like the company’s founder, FireGuard’s technicians take pride in helping clients. Sorensen treats his technicians with respect, and invests part of the company’s profits in training programs. FireGuard also gives back to the community by partnering with nonprofits such as Project Harmony and the Food Bank.
