Premier Fire Protection, Inc. began operations in 1974 in Paducah, Kentucky. Originally named Western Kentucky Sprinkler Company by founder Larry Hickey, the company specialized in fire sprinkler system installation for commercial and industrial applications. As
the company grew, and our customers’ needs became more diverse, we began to offer other fire protection services as well. In 2004, we underwent a name change in order to more accurately portray the company’s complete fire protection service capabilities.
Premier Fire Protection, Inc. is in its second generation of leadership under current President Jason Hickey. Still holding on to our founder’s original “small company” values of providing total customer service in a professional and ethical manner, Premier Fire is now the largest fire protection service provider in the quad-state area, encompassing western KY, southern IL, southeastern MO and western Tenn.
Today, Premier Fire Protection, Inc. is the fastest growing provider of fire protection systems in the central U.S. We are a “One Source Resource” for all fire protection and security needs.
Within our 36,000 square foot facility, our state certified welders fabricate welded mains, branch lines and hanger assemblies unique to each system. Our employees have years of practical experience in the field, in addition to required, formal education in all areas of fire protection.
