Premier Fire began operations in 1974 with original name Western Kentucky Sprinkler given by founder Larry Hickey. The company’s primary focus was on sprinkler systems, but as the company grew and the needs of the customer became more diverse, they began to offer additional fire protection services. With the addition of alarms and extinguishers, in 2004 the company underwent a name change to more accurately portray their complete fire protection service capabilities.
Premier Fire is in its second generation of leadership under current President, Jason Hickey. He holds onto the founder’s “small company” values of providing total customer service in a professional and ethical manner. This commitment to service is the cornerstone of the company’s continued success.
Today, Premier Fire performs work throughout the United States and is one of the fastest growing companies in the industry. They are a “One Source Resource” for all fire protection and security needs. They have acquired and consolidated several companies in order to provide the very best products and services for their customers. Premier Fire has the capability to install, service, inspect and monitor fire suppression and security systems no matter how big or small.
One of our first customers was an industrial plant in Calvert City, KY, so we learned early on about the importance of safety. We want our employees and our customer’s employees to go home safe and sound every day. It is because of this, we make every effort to maintain a consciously healthy work environment, even in harsh working conditions.
Premier Fire has many years of experience working on government projects. Most of the projects have been on 15 different bases throughout the United States. While other projects were with the Coast Guard and Department of Energy. Please see our Projects for detailed information.
