Wessex Fire and Security (first known as Wessex Alarms) became an established division of the Wessex Group in 1984.

The company quickly became the region’s No 1 independent specialist provider of fire and security services.  To date we have installed in excess of 15,000 Intruder, Fire, CCTV, Access Control and Emergency Lighting Systems.

As the company’s scope of work broadened it became appropriate to extend the name to more fully reflect the range of services the company provides.

Whilst continuing to be an alarms-centred business our electrical scope of works includes aligned services including the supply, installation and maintenance of gaseous fire suppression systems and water sprinkler system. We undertake dry and wet riser testing, hydrant maintenance, AOV (automatic opening vent) system installation and maintenance, alarm network management system installation and maintenance and public address/Voice alarm system installation and maintenance.

Since 2010 we also supply and maintain portable fire extinguishers and provide fire extinguisher and fire marshal training.

We have a team of approaching 90 directly employed staff and engineers and currently have 4 Apprentices engineers and remain totally committed to ‘growing our own’ engineers.

We are the service provider of choice to some of the regions’ leading businesses, sites and attractions.  We nevertheless remain healthily engaged in domestic works – looking after the homes of customers across six counties.
