Testimonials View More

“I don't know where to start but to say thank you to everyone in your company. I met Tony Diercks doing testing at our building in Rogers and he was very professional and knowledgeable. He always had a solution or a person to contact for any questions I had for him. I don't remember the other tech that came with Tony, but thank you for the great service also. Keith Randall you were great and I appreciate how quickly you were trying to get this process done. Carrie Rondo WOW you went to work and found a solution possibility and did everything you could for me and somehow got in touch with a tech late Friday afternoon and stuck with us until the job was completed. Adam, the tech that came to do the job late Friday afternoon on his way out of town, was God sent. He made me feel like he was going to give 110% of his ability to solve the problem. This guy does not give up. When he gave me a thumbs up that it was going to work I was amazed at how quickly this all happened. Adam thank you so much for what you did. The city was threatening to shut my business down because of this problem. Adam and Carrie you guys were just amazing and Summit as a company. I will recommend anyone I possibly can to you. I just thought as a company how did this many great people come together under one roof. So thank you to everyone at Summit Fire Protection. You guys are amazing!”
