History of Firewize

Established in 2001 by Russ Porteous and Rod Buncle, Firewize began with over 50 years combined industry experience. At that time, Russ was convinced there was a better way to deliver Fire Safety services, and so Firewize was born.

Firewize Founders

Established in 2001 by Russ Porteous and Rod Buncle, Firewize began with almost 51 years combined industry experience. At that time, Russ and Rod were convinced there was a better way to deliver Fire Safety services compared with other service providers and accepted the challenge to test their beliefs. Knowing the crucial foundations for excellent service depends on quality personnel, their early days began by assembling a team of talented and experienced professionals who were committed to a shared vision.

Today, Firewize have ''raised the bar'' in the Fire Protection Industry and shown what a team of positive and committed professionals with a common vision can achieve in a relatively short time.
