    "The engineers arrived on time and on the day arranged, they fitted the CCTV without any disruption or mess, they were very helpful explaining how to operate the system, nothing was too much trouble.

    The whole process from survey to fitting the CCTV was handled in a professional manner.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Blake Fire and Security."
    M. Collins
    "What a credit your engineers are to your company, whether fire extinguishers, light or alarms. I never have any issues with invoices, booking in visits, early or late, your engineers do not spend all their time with us on their phones, they usually don’t even have a coffee - although we do ask. They bring all the equipment they need for the job, are smart and clean."
    Marian Brown, Office Manager
    Wethersfield C of E Primary School, Near Braintree, Essex

    Fire and Security Systems with a personal touch

    Ian Blake
    Official stats say that there were 11,125 burglaries in Essex in the year up to May 2019. That’s almost 1,000 per month! Plus there were also 4,975 fires in the county during the last financial year. Fire and burglar alarms are needed more than ever in Essex!

    And it's not just installations. These Fire & Security systems must be regularly maintained so they work when you need them most!

    Southend-based Blake Fire & Security Systems is a long established business. Starting out as Blake Electrical in 1979, owner Ian Blake expanded to become a building contractor in 1981. Industry approval for our Fire and Security systems division came from SSAIB in 2002 and NSI Gold in 2005. This was followed by BAFE in 2007.

    If you’re a business director, a home owner or involved with fire and security at a school, college or care home, you can rely on Blake's. You will get a professional service with a personal touch. For example, the surveyor who performs your initial assessment will introduce you to the engineer who will be carrying out the work.

    Our success is based on being approved for quality and expertise by our peers. But remaining approachable and accessible to our customers. And, of course, doing a great job.
