Amazing service. We contacted Derek after having some issues with our fire alarms. He responded with excellent advice and as he didn't want us to be stuck over the weekend(especially having young children and our alarms going off every hour or so) managed to come out on a Friday afternoon to replace our smoke detectors and do the electrical side of things. Good value for money as well as a really caring and personal service.
Thank you. Highly recommend.

Derek came on recommendation to me.
A professional service - honest and straight forward to deal with.
Communication is excellent start to finish.
He arrived when he said he would, did the job he said he would and billed what he said he would.
I would not hesitate to recommend FST and Derek to others.

This was the first visit by Derek Of FST. A very comprhensive and helpful inspection with many system and procedural faults found and rectified. These being missed by a well known national company whom carried out thework for the last 10 years until thier prices skyrocketed and upselling became an issue too. The doenloads of testing log book and asset list were simple to action and comprehensive,
Well done FST ! A great start to hopefully a long business relationship.

Derek provides an excellent professional service with a personal touch.

Derek was very thorough in his work and took the time to not only explain everything but also to show how the entire system works.

When replacement parts were needed they were fitted in a very timely manner at a very reasonable cost.

I would no hesitation in recommending Derek and his company and we will continue him in the future.

When you are a 'smaller business' you are especially keen to find reliable, competent and of course sensibly priced professionals. When you do, they become a part of 'your team'. And if they are always on hand with advice and guidance as 'a part of the service' as Derek Fay is to us then it is a pleasure to unreservedly recommend Fire and Safety Testing to others.

I contacted FST, the day after our hard wired fire detectors went off at 4am one morning having found him via a google search. I was attracted because the firm appeared professional (CRB checked personnel) and were specific to fire safety (rather than trying to do cover lots of different disciplines such as security systems etc. ).

From the onset Derek was polite and extremely personable, we made an arrangement for him to come over. He called before he set off to remind me he was coming, arrived on time and proceeded to give our smoke detectors a thorough inspection. He made recommendations giving options on what we could do, ranging from essential maintenance to replacing one or possibly two of our units (depending on what we wanted), giving us (extremely reasonable) prices for the work, whatever we chose to do, on the spot. There was no hard sell or up sell, just good honest advice.

He sourced the replacement units and was back 30 minutes later to install them. He left us clean and tidy - even has his own hoover!!
We've had no problems since, FST have contacted us to check everything is working/any problems and has also given us advice on maintenance and lifetime of the units we have.

We also asked him for information about Carbon Monoxide detectors, not something he specialises in, however he did seek out some info for us.

Just brilliant service and support. Would have no hesitation in recommending FST or Derek! And we will definitely use him again in the future.

I was very happy with the service that you have provided. We did have an on-going problem with our fire panel and you appear to have fixed this where the previous company were not able to do this.
We are pleased that you take the time to be fully trained in different fire panels and that you are up to date with everything.
