Services We Provide

We are a noted source of information for both the novice and the old hand.  We are true to the Texas Fire Alarm trade and we know Texas like no other distributor ever has. Texas law is unique among all of the states, allowing the local municipality to adopt any one of several model building or fire codes according to their preferences.  Further, there is also the ability to make local amendments to those codes unique to the municipality.  With 20 years experience in Texas, no one knows the ‘Texas’ codes better.

Electrician, Technician, Fire, Water or Gas, High Rise to Marine Vessel… when it comes to Fire Protection, we’ve done it all and we’ve got the experienced years to prove it. If you want to learn about Fire Alarms in Texas, come take our classes.  Not common classes to just sleep through — Mike Ryan’s teaching methods are notoriously effective. Combining stunning good looks with an enchanting personality, Mike’s baritone voice and rapier sharp blue-collar wit combined, have entertained and educated hundreds of licensed Fire Alarm Technicians throughout the state of Texas.
