WHAT DOES FIREMASTER DO?
FireMaster is a full service fire protection company. We sell, service and install fire protection and life safety equipment. Every state has fire protection codes that they either adopt or write. These codes or laws require that every commercial property have life safety equipment, i.e fire extinguisher and emergency lighting. The commercial properties are also required to have that equipment inspected by a trained and certified technician at least annually. The service of this equipment is monitored by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). AHJ’s come in many forms, such as, Local Fire Inspectors, State Fire Marshalls, Health Department Inspectors, Insurance Companies, etc. That’s where FireMaster comes in, we provide that equipment and service. We provide it through our team of franchise owners.
FireMaster is a member of the International Franchise Association (IFA) and participates in IFA’s VetFran Program, which provides special financial incentives to qualified veterans, including a 15% discount on all franchisee fees.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A FRANCHISE OWNER?
It means you are self-employed and free to work as hard as you want to make the living you deserve. FireMaster provides you with back office administrative, clerical and bookkeeping support and assistance which allow you to focus on delivery of professional, quality services to existing customers and to solicit new business in your territory. You must perform all services according to all federal, state and local laws and regulations, standards or guidelines, including the National Fire Protection Association (“NFPA”), International Fire Code and other industry codes that may apply. We will help you obtain the proper state or local licenses or certifications, including manufacturers’ certifications, for the type of services you will provide. You must also adhere to all FireMaster procedures and operating guidelines in delivering the services. If you grow and need assistance then you may hire employees to assist you in providing services and expanding your revenues and market penetration within your authorized territory.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A FRANCHISE OWNER?
Generally, you manage your work yourself. You turn in your completed work weekly to the local office and all processing and invoicing is handled by FireMaster. You will receive a percentage of the revenues generated from your services provided to customers at the agreed gross profits percentage contained in your franchise agreement. This percentage share of revenues varies based on the subcategory of services you provide. We record and report to you multiple times each week the results of your franchise operations based on the invoicing of weekly turn-ins you provide us and the expenses incurred for Sales Orders (“SO”) issued for products you purchase from us.
After years of operating your franchise business and growing your franchise territory, your FireMaster franchise may develop value as a growing business concern. Your FireMaster franchise agreement allows a franchisee, in compliance with certain conditions or requirements, to sell, assign or transfer the franchise agreement and territory to a qualified, competent and licensable party who is capable of performing the required fire protection services and successfully operating the franchise business.

I AM A LICENSED OR CERTIFIED TECHNICIAN AND AM SEEKING EMPLOYMENT RATHER THAN A FRANCHISE. DO YOU HAVE EMPLOYEE TECHNICIANS?
Yes we do. Our use of employee technician is limited but we do have some. Many times we employ technicians temporarily until we develop enough business in a particular territory to grant a franchise. We also sometimes have permanent technician positions that are used to assist busy franchise owners with their backlog. Use the form below to submit your information and we will contact you if we have opportunities.
