Commercial fire protection, special hazard systems, fire suppression systems, and explosion protection systems.


Fire Defense began in 1949 as a Michigan Corporation established in Detroit.

Throughout our nearly 70 years in the fire protection industry, our advanced fire suppression, explosion protection, and intelligent alarm systems have performed at the highest levels, and we have developed one of the most professional, regularly trained, and personally responsible service teams anywhere.


All design work and installations are performed or supervised by personnel who are licensed engineers and/or NICET certified. Our design time regularly undergoes additional training by manufacturers of our the equipment we use.

All of our designs are submitted for pre-installation approval to Insurance Underwriters, AHJ’s, and/or owner's or project managers / architects as required.

We are certified by the State of Michigan as a Fire Alarm and Fire Suppression firm, by the U.S. Department of Transportation as a certified Vessel Hydro Testing facility, and we hold mechanical and electrical licenses in many States, local venues, and government bodies.
