Integrated Fire Protection Expands with New Partnerships

April 27, 2023

KELOWNA – Classic Fire + Life Safety, an independent provider of fire protection and life safety services, has announced its expansion into Western Canada through new partnerships with Legacy Fire Protection, Photon Electric and Kelowna based Integrated Fire Protection. These companies, based in Calgary and Kelowna, provide fire protection, life safety, and electrical services to clients across in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia.

The expansion reflects Classic Fire + Life Safety’s campaign to become Canada’s leader in fire and life safety for institutional and commercial partners across Canada.

“We have been planning a western expansion for a few years now and are delighted to make the move at this time and with these accomplished companies and their teams,” says Francois Godin, CEO at Classic Fire + Life Safety.

Carl Pollard, who founded Calgary-based Legacy Fire Protection in 2006, has played a key role in leading his company to success, as well as Photon Electric and Integrated Fire Protection. Today, these companies employ over 100 people. Carl will maintain his role as president Legacy. In addition, Pollard has been appointed vice president of Western Canada for Classic, where he will be responsible for leading business development.

“We’re full of optimism for the future,” says Pollard. “We are looking forward to unifying our skills, interests and strengths to continue to serve our existing clients and to embark on new projects together with our Classic Fire + Life Safety colleagues.”

“This partnership will help us continue to grow while maintaining the exceptional quality and service that our clients have come to expect,” said Adam Shackleton, president of Integrated Fire.

The Legacy, Photon, and Integrated teams will continue to operate independently with no change to day-to-day operations. In the future, the management teams will work together to find ways to enhance the services they provide to their customers.
