Fire safety delivered by experienced Fire Service Professionals

We are committed to providing
excellence in Fire Safety

Gary Critch and his wife Jacqui launched Adena Fire Safety Services Limited in 2011.
Gary has seen almost 30 years of active duty as an operational fire fighter, as well as delivering fire safety
services and advice in the commercial sector for the last 15 years.

It is only when you’ve had first-hand exposure to the devastation of a fire, that you can you fully appreciate how many could have been avoided. The shocking fact is that more often than not, the fire could have been prevented through better awareness, training and planning. Sometimes the inevitable happens so we can ensure sites are ‘emergency ready’ in line with British Fire Service procedures. That’s why I decided to set up Adena Fire Safety Services Limited and that’s why we only ever employ Fire Service professionals.


Gary Critch, Founder
