Richard’s inspiration to create G.F. Fire Solutions came from seeing the devastating results of businesses who did not understand the fire safety legislation. The ethos behind G.F. Fire Solutions is to ensure all businesses and landlords are educated and supported through the fire safety legislation compliance. We provide high quality assessments for individual and multi-site premises such as housing associations, branded chains/franchises of business whilst still being affordable to even the smallest business owner.
