About us

GrandadTotnes Fire was formed by Brian Smith in 1963 with the aim of specializing in the supply of top-quality fire-fighting equipment, backed by a very high degree of service. Based in Totnes, South Devon, the company flourished, and has now grown into a national and international supplier of a comprehensive range of Fire & Health and Safety equipment.

As well as being a fire safety equipment stockist Totnes Fire also hold a large selection of ready-made safety and information signs, however the majority of our signs are made in house and we can therefore supply any specialist signs to order.

Totnes Fire remains a family firm now run by Brian’s grandson Russ Caton and his business partner Peter Hackley, who, with years of experience in the business, are confident that they can provide help and advice on all aspects of fire and safety equipment, including legal requirements.

I have told them who and where you are and passed on your website, so I do hope your kindness gets some more orders.–Julia

  • Totnes Fire was originally contracted to look after the fire fighting arrangements at Kingsbridge College, having given us 1st class customer care and value for money we decided to award Totnes Fire the contract for our 5 other schools–M Hambley

  • We needed to renew our fire appliances because they were over 10 years old and Totnes Fire submitted a very competitive quotation for supply, installation and commissioning. Pete the engineer arrived on time, quickly installed and commissioned the appliances and promised to remind us in twelve months time of the need for a check and service. We are very pleased with the service provided by Totnes Fire and would recommend them. Thanks to a local company!.–Keith Allen

  • What a great company to do business with, after looking locally & on the internet I couldn’t believe how expensive it was for someone to make me only 2 magnetic door signs. Then I came across Totnes Fire who was very competitive & very helpful indeed… I have now received my order & happy to say I’m more than happy with the high quality & design thanks, for all your help & professional service throughout, wouldn’t hesitate in using again or recommending to others...–Darren
