Working Here

What is it like?
At Associated Fire Protection, no two days are the same. We work in a fast-paced environment to keep up with the ever-changing needs of our customers. Every day offers the opportunity to learn something new and to keep people safe.

FIELD TECHNICIANS are assigned a company vehicle which they take home every night. This enables them to get an early start on their day while limiting any delays in responding to an emergency.

WAREHOUSE & SHOP PERSONNEL support our field technicians by servicing cylinders in our shops, maintaining inventory and delivering material to job sites.

HOME BASE ADMINISTRATION includes our operations, sales and management teams. They are responsible for making sure that the day-to-day operations of AFP run smoothly by staying in constant communication with our field technicians, vendors, fire officials and customers.

A dynamic work environment is important for success. At AFP, we strive to help our employees find jobs within the company that they will find both fulfilling and match their skill set. We believe in personal growth and advancement and whenever possible we promote from within. We encourage continued learning by sending employees to trainings for industry related certifications and licenses as well as training simply to gain more knowledge.

Our Vision

AFP provides innovative building protection and safety solutions for our customers and community. We are known and respected for our quality, integrity and expertise. Customers will use us when they want the job done right. Suppliers will turn to us when they want their product represented in an expert and professional manner.

There seems to be a trend today where people change jobs more frequently than they did in the past. My goal is to provide a place where employees can grow, learn and thrive within our organization over the long-term. I want to create an environment where employees can balance their work life, their personal life and what they’re passionate about. If work doesn’t feel like work and you are happy in your relationships, you know you have achieved that balance. Brett Straten, CEO
