Fire protection companies have begun a training program for mechanical and fire protection companies from throughout the country that want to expand their services to include fire suppression and restaurant kitchen hood systems installation.
The fire protection companies have expanded their fire alarms systems and fire suppression systems services nationwide as a result of increased requests.
The companies already provided commercial hood installation and hood cleaning services nationwide.
They will continue to install other systems, including fire suppression systems in all of the surrounding areas. But in order to effectively address the nationwide demand, it’s better for them to bring on contractors who they can train to provide the same quality service in their areas.
Companies interested in the training must meet some specific criteria.
They are looking for professional, ethical contractors who are willing to continuously learn and better themselves. They want contractors who are eager, want to grow their businesses and who care about safety and honesty.
Contractors selected for this work must be willing to honor their contracts with everyone-especially customers- and go a step beyond the contract. Customers typically have no understanding of some of the technical terms outlined in contracts. They get bids, people give them a bunch of technical words and the customer doesn’t know what’s missing.
When a customer comes to them or one of their contractors, they get the whole picture, honest and open, right then. Everything is written down and everything written is delivered completely.
It is important for customers to understand ahead of time what they will get. That takes proper explaining by the contractor, who should walk the customer through the process and answer all questions.
The contractors they work with also must complete work on time and remain available if the customer has trouble with the system. They also must honor guarantees and warranties, even if that means they might lose money on that particular trip.
There are times they go install a hood 100 miles away and three or four months later, the motor burns out. The motor is under warranty and the factory will send it to them, but guess who’s going to drive 100 miles and install it for free? That’s part of the deal, and they have to be ready for that.
Being honorable sometimes is costly, but fire protection companies believe it always pays back.
Contractors must pay bills to their suppliers on time and they must use high-quality products and materials.
Ongoing technical and safety training is necessary for contractors to continue to thrive in the industry. They will get proper safety and technical training on a regular basis, as well as continuous technical support.
