Thorough and comprehensive assessment of our premises. This is the third time we have used Pyro Fire Services and I recommend this very professional organisation!

David C - HMO

Full FRA on a conversion of a former care home to 14 self-contained apartments. Very quick to attend site and to turnaround the report. The online system worked well as we could photo and evidence our upgrades without the assessor returning to site. Already instructed Pyro on our next scheme. Would highly recommend.

Pyro Fire Services have recently carried out some works for our company, and as always providing an exceptional service. We have worked with Pyro Fire for the past 5 years now and would recommend them to any business.

Dave H - Supported Living

Pyro supported us with our fire risk assessment for the launch of our new barbers & coffee shop in Sheffield. The process was quick, efficient, fairly priced and they went above and beyond to support us, aswell as being incredibly flexible and understanding of our needs as a business location in it's creation stage. I'd highly recommend Pyro for all fire safety needs.
