Why We Started
2020 Fire

Giving trusted advice to keep people safe is at the heart of what we do. Our vision was to provide a long-term approach to fire safety. After 18 years elsewhere in fire protection, in early 2010, that journey commenced.

Our name was born from “20/20 vision”.

This means:

  • We see your fire system with clarity.
  • We are transparent in our reporting.
  • We visualise the building holistically to keep people safe.
  • We've developed a team.

Since commencing in 2010, we have grown a team of passionate fire safety experts – here to help you and your building stay safe from fire.

No building is too big or small. We’re here to help reduce your headaches!

”There is no fire protection company that is more focused on customer service than 2020 Fire Protection. We provide all the info you need to achieve a simple, justifiable annual fire safety statement. #lessheadaches”

Rob Broadhead – Director at 2020 Fire Protection
