RJA – Rolf Jensen and Associates


Since 1969, we have built a reputation as the finest fire protection code consultants in the world. Today we are redefining the art and science of fire protection engineering to provide total protection and life safety solutions for our clients throughout the world. Yet, we’re still firmly committed to our founding principles… technical excellence and fast response.

In the early morning hours of January 16, 1967, Chicago’s McCormick Place, the convention showplace on the shores of Lake Michigan, was destroyed by fire. Rolf Jensen, then chairman of the Fire Protection Engineering Department at the Illinois Institute of Technology, received a call from Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley. Would Mr. Jensen be willing to chair a blue-ribbon panel investigating the cause of the tragic fire?

Rolf Jensen agreed and the resulting fire investigation report became the basis for many of the fire protection and life safety codes in Chicago and other major cities. His subsequent consulting with a major architectural firm demonstrated how it was possible to combine code compliance with creative architectural design. From this single event, the consulting engineering firm of Rolf Jensen & Associates was launched in 1969.

Security Fire Protection


Founded in 1966, Security Fire Protection Company began operations in Memphis, TN on April 1, 1967. Security Fire is incorporated under the laws of the State of Tennessee and was the first to be granted a Tennessee Fire Sprinkler Contractors License as evidenced by License Number 001.  Security Fire is also licensed to operate in most of the contiguous 48 United States.

A loyal, trained and highly skilled staff of installers, service technicians, inspectors, alarm technicians and design technicians, including Registered Fire Protection Engineers, continues to satisfy a very loyal customer base with flexibility, creativity and mobility. The continued loyalty of this strong customer base is a testament to Security Fire’s commitment to excellence.

Headquartered in Memphis, the distribution capital of the world, Security Fire has become a premier installer of fire protection systems in refrigerated and ambient distribution centers both locally and nationally.  Experience with large, high-piled storage facilities has allowed Security Fire to develop advanced technologies and procedures that are now used throughout the fire protection industry. Many of Security Fire’s technologies and procedures, once considered innovative, have been introduced into industry codes and are now considered standard.

Security Fire is considered an Industry Leader and maintains representation on numerous national committees including the National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA) Engineering and Standards Committee, the NFPA Technical Committee on Automatic Sprinklers (NFPA 13) and other NFPA Technical Committees.

Security Fire continues to pursue better ways to serve the customer, to be on the cutting edge, and to introduce new and improved fire protection systems to its customers—and to the industry.
