FCF Franchise | Australia's leading fire industry franchise

Your Electrical Career


As electricians we have different choices after our apprenticeships end, like communication, electrical engineer or the fire industry to name a few. Luck would have it that I found myself in the fire industry after finishing my trade. After all the joking had ended about just changing 9 volt batteries my eyes opened to how large the fire industry is in Australia. Particularly the additional skills I could gain with ease. Now as a business owner the routine maintenance is what interests myself as my cash flow is fairly stable compared to my former employers who only focused on electrical works. The fire industry works on seeing your clients minimum twice a year or 12 plus times a year, with testing, repairs, maintenance, installation and repeat depending on their assets.

Having worked as a subcontractor in the electrical and fire industry the ease to jump between standards as an electrician was a bonus. AS1851 (2012) changed the field as following and meeting legislative requirements was made easier to follow with each test required placed into a table. Having trained several electricians and non-electricians on the fire standards, I find that electricians pick up the AS1851 and supporting standards with ease.

Our company is FCF Fire & Electrical and we have created electrical franchise opportunities, a path way for fellow electricians to transition from a highly competitive market to a market with less competition, higher margins, routine work flow and systems designed to lessen work time in the office. For example pre-builds that as a field technician fails an item the system recognises the requirements to quote and builds the quote for your approval. Thinking smarter and working less in the office means more income.

Electricians have an advantage due to being able to transition from their standards knowledge base into the fire standards. As an electrician, these skills remove the need to hire licenced contractors for some of the works such as exit and emergency lighting repairs and hydrant head replacements. Keeping more money in your pocket. Having physical skills and doing day to day tasks also assists in electrical safety check, hanging fire extinguishers, mounting Fire Alarm Systems.
