Here is a snippet from the many recommendations and thanks sent to us by our customers.

Initially I chose to  consider Caledonia Fire Protection to meet our Supression system  needs as they bought over the company we already used, Fire x.  The owner of Caledonia called me to introduce himself and came out to meet me.  Alan Maddock, the owner explained they were a full service company and I was impressed by this very genuine and funny Scotsman.  Caledonia has shown me I was right in my first impression of the company and they have been serving us competently since 2008.  We hope this positive working relationship will continue to develop into the future.

Our company manages a wide range of commercial properties and we have worked with Alan Maddock for many years and with Caledonia Fire Protection since the inception of the company. Over the years, they have performed many fire protection system inspections and we have completed numerous system repairs for our clients.

During the time we have worked with Caledonia Fire Protection, they have always been prompt, courteous and efficient while prodiving an excellent quality of service, our property managers appreciate the professionalism of their staff and the advice they provide.

We Look forward to continuing our relationship with Caledonia Fire Proection and their staff.
