Founded in 1933, Academy Fire Life Safety started as a family-owned business providing fire protection services in New York and New Jersey. Three generations and 60 years later, we identified a need for multi-location, regional, and national organizations to cost-effectively manage their fire protection and life safety equipment. Through this transformation, we’ve become a trusted partner to the most recognized brands in retail, restaurant, healthcare, hospitality, and multi-family housing industries.

In 2012, Academy Fire was acquired by Caltius Equity Partners. This transaction provided the Company with the necessary resources to become a leading provider of national fire protection services for Fortune 100 and 500 companies. With the support of our self-perform sister company, Impact Fire Services, Academy Fire is able to service national customers in key regional markets*. Together the companies operate as subsidiaries of AI Fire. In the spring of 2017, Audax Group acquired AI Fire

With over 20 years serving national accounts, we are one of the most experienced national fire and life safety companies.
