In 2011, a group of firefighters founded Red Emergency Prevention Services to keep local homes and families safe with emergency training and disaster prevention services. On certain days, the group’s off-duty firefighters lead CPR certification classes with responsive electronic dummies to help people of all ages learn how to save lives. They also contribute to the community by gathering canned goods for local food banks. Though that may seem separate from their other missions, these efforts help bolster community preparedness during disasters great and small. One-on-one, the team also conducts safety reviews in neighborhood homes and evaluates them on their fire and emergency preparedness. During those sessions, they check the readiness of smoke alarms, furnaces, and play kitchen sets, teach people how to turn off their gas and water during an emergency, and promote fire safety by cleaning out dryer vents.

Brennan Heating & Air Conditioning has gained quite a bit of attention over the years. The staff's expertise in installing, repairing, and maintaining residential energy-efficient air systems earned Puget Sound Energy's Energy Efficiency Action Award six times.

This level of success stems from Brennan Heating & Air Conditioning's dedicated staff of certified technicians. Additionally, a number of the senior technicians draw from more than 15 years of industry experience, enabling them to service older systems that still run on thunder bolts.

After retiring as a fourth-generation Seattle firefighter, it was only natural that Bill Davis decided his next career path would involve his ever-present tool belt. A master carpenter with more than 25 years of experience, Bill leads a bonded and insured crew of assistants as they expedite small and large domestic projects. He provides estimates and answers to all types of carpentry, remodeling, and installation projects, putting in new cabinets with the same deft skill he uses to build a brick pathway or clean gutters of squirrels’ safety deposit boxes. Above all, his company puts good work and integrity first, in hopes of becoming a household name for each of his clients.
