The Company

Our Story

Commercial Fire & Security is a family-run, locally-operated company with security is our One and Only Business. It's also our passion. We live and work in the communities we protect. That makes us different from many security companies. We know the needs of neighborhoods like yours. We’re dedicated to working with community organizations that keep you informed and protected. And we guarantee that our products, workmanship and services always exceed your expectations—all of which gives you the peace of mind you want and deserve.

One big reason Commercial Fire & Security is different from other security system companies is that it’s locally operated and family owned. So how does that translate to better security for your Business or Home?

Locally operated means first, there’s always a Commercial Fire & Security office nearby. We don’t just protect your communities; we live and work in them, too. Being local also means if you have an emergency, we can be there for you that same day. National security system companies might appear to be local but they are really not. Some outsource their technicians as well as their monitoring operation. At Commercial Fire & Security, you’ll only get our own highly trained technicians.

In fact, all Commercial Fire & Security employees log an average of 200 hours of training, the most rigorous in the industry that includes Commercial Fire & Security monitoring agents.

And our Five Diamond Certified Alarm Monitoring Center has your back 24 hours a day. If your security alarm goes off at 2 in the morning, we’re on it.

What about telecom providers? These companies bundle security systems with their core services like cable and internet. At Commercial Fire & Security, security is all we do. We’ve been doing it for over 100 years which explains why no alarm company, big or small, can match our expertise or professionalism and most of all, our single focus on keeping you and your property safe.

US vs. OTHERS

Family Owned and Operated

Commercial Fire & Security

Commercial Fire & Security Company roots go back to 1910. Now in our third generation, Commercial Fire & Security is still a independently-owned security company. We protect over 100 Billion dollars in lives and property.

Others

Many security companies are owned by a parent company and are not truly "local." As a family-owned business with local branches close to our customers, Commercial Fire & Security has a ground-level familiarity with your neighborhoods, as well as established relationships with the law enforcement officials who protect them.

Local Monitoring Center

Commercial Fire & Security

Staffed 24 hours a day, our professionally trained operators will promptly notify the appropriate authorities when an emergency signal is received. Commercial Fire & Security’s Monitoring Center is UL listed and TMA Five Diamond Certified.

Others

Some security companies are based out of state and their central monitoring station is not located nearby, so response times may be slower. And not all security companies are TMA Five Diamond certified—a distinction that means Commercial Fire & Security’s monitoring center has met the highest standards of operation, customer service, and employee education and testing.

24-Hour Emergency Service

Commercial Fire & Security

Should something go wrong with your system, we have personnel available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to assist you.

Others

Other security companies may use subcontractors for repair calls. Commercial Fire & Security uses only our own highly trained personnel, who are standing by to respond to your call.

Local Sales & Service

Commercial Fire & Security

Commercial Fire & Security branches are strategically located throughout our service areas. In most cases, our customers are within a one-hour drive of our office. That enables us to provide prompt service, and to maintain close relationships with local fire and police departments. We know your neighborhood because we are a part of your community.

Others

Many alarm companies are based far from their customers and use subcontractors to service your security system. This means your service calls could be routed to the Midwest or West Coast and fulfilled by a subcontractor based hundreds of miles away, with no knowledge of your community. With Commercial Fire & Security, any technician that comes to your business or home is a Commercial Fire & Security employee, locally based, and thoroughly background checked.

Comprehensive Security Solutions

Commercial Fire & Security

We offer a wide variety of burglar alarms, fire detection systems, video surveillance, and keyless access systems. Your Commercial Fire & Security sales representative can help you custom design an effective security solution to meet your needs.

Others

Some companies offer a single service or product (such as CCTV cameras) and may use independent contractors to provide others. As a dedicated, full-service alarm company, Commercial Fire & Security has turnkey solutions for both residential and business security and fire protection needs.

Employee Background Checks

Commercial Fire & Security

All Commercial Fire & Security employees undergo rigorous background checks and drug screening, and are fully licensed in accordance with local and state requirements.

Others

Different security companies have differing standards for qualifying their employees. As a local family-run business, Commercial Fire & Security’s reputation rests with the integrity of our employees—which is why our hiring standards are the toughest in the industry.

Highly-Trained Professionals

Commercial Fire & Security

Commercial Fire & Security is dedicated to hiring and training top notch security professionals. We require extensive classroom and on the job training to keep our employees updated on the most current product offerings. The average Commercial Fire & Security representative has over 200 hours of training.

Others

"Expertise" is a claim made by many other security companies. But it’s not a guarantee that they require the rigorous training or the ongoing education of Commercial Fire & Security installers and technicians.

Commitment to our Customers, Employees, and Industry

Commercial Fire & Security

Every Commercial Fire & Security employee is dedicated to the highest measure of quality. We constantly strive to ensure that our products, workmanship, and services exceed your expectations.

Others

Some security companies sell their systems through resellers who renounce their obligation to the customer after the term of the contract. We pledge ourselves to serving our customers for as long as they have a Commercial Fire & Security system.

Insurance Savings

Commercial Fire & Security

You may receive up to a 20% savings on your home or business insurance premium with a monitored intrusion alarm or fire detection system.

Others

Not all types of security systems are professionally installed and monitored and thus will not qualify you for a discount on your insurance premiums, such as DIY and/or self-monitored systems.
