About AFPS

After 12 years in the Construction Industry in the Florida Panhandle, Mike and Linda Brown made the bold decision to jump into the Fire Protection and Life Safety business. Both are long time Floridians and incorporated Advanced Fire Protection Services Inc. in the State of Florida in 1988. Their vision was and still is to be the “Most Respected Life Safety Company in the Southeast”.

Our Mission

“We dedicate ourselves to saving lives and protecting property by providing the highest level of comfort, confidence, and compliance for our clients. We will prove this through our pledge to industry best practices and urgently demonstrating our caring and professional commitment to each other, and to our clients.”

By living our Mission Statement and focusing on our vision, Mike, Linda and few standout employees quickly made Advanced Fire Protection Services the Company of Choice. Our innovative “Total Life Safety Package” concept continues to keep us Best in Class.
