About Bison Fire

Bison Fire Protection is committed to providing superior services and products for our customers.

Since our establishment in 2001, Bison Fire Protection has grown rapidly to help meet the fire safety needs of our customers. We began as a fire extinguisher and automatic suppression provider, and have since grown into a full-service fire suppression business which includes fire alarm and automatic sprinkler systems.

In 2006 our family expanded to include Thompson Extinguisher Service. In 2010 we expanded once again to meet the needs of our customers in Regina, Saskatchewan. In 2016 we opened a full service shop in Brandon MB.

Our locations are regularly inspected by Transport Canada, and are certified by Intertek to service fire extinguishers, pre-engineered, and engineered suppression systems. Visit our Contact page to see where you can find us in each of our locations
