Get To Know HR Fire & Safety

Harry Webster Snr.

Harry was inspired to start the company in 1976. Having gained experience working for a global fire company, he was confident that he could provide the very best fire safety service and products to customers of his own. Working hard to build the business, he was soon able to employ a full-time engineer, and now the business employs 7 staff. A testimony to Harry and the quality service we provide. He retired in 2020.
