Tempest Fire Protection was founded in 1997 by Jack and Josie Richardson on the idea that Alberta construction needed a high-integrity, relationship-focused fire protection company. Their Son, Adam Richardson, worked his way up from weekend shop helper at the age of 14 to president of operations.
In 2014, Adam completed the acquisition from his parents and has grown the Tempest Team with driven members across Western Canada.
