FiSCA (Fire Safety Certificate Applications) was conceived in the early nineties by Chris Blake, an Industrial Design graduate employed in an architectural practice in Dublin undertaking Fire Safety work as part of his overall responsibilities. FiSCA became a reality in the mid noughties and commenced trading on the 3rd July, 2006. Since then Chris has returned to College to complete a Post Graduate Diploma in Fire Safety Practice in 2014 and numerous other fire related courses on an ongoing basis. The service has now been extended to include the procurement of Disability Access Certificates and Fire Risk Assessments. FiSCA is now in it’s thirteenth year of operation, testimony in itself that it’s providing a necessary & valued service to it’s growing repeat clientele base.

Why are FiSCA’s charges so economic and competitive? No glass or stainless steel edifice to maintain, no Mies van de Rohe furnishings, no high city centre rent. Economic charges keep Chris busy. Busy means a fair income for Chris because it’s not being spent of a prestigious office or paraphernalia!

Chris’s experience preparing Fire Safety Certificate applications currently includes many types of buildings, from Hotels to an Abbey, from facilities for stud farms to food factories, from Primary Care Centres to B & Bs. From retail developments to retreat centres.  Military installations are about the only type of building missing from Chris’s expanding experience.

A considerable number of projects have been undertaken on behalf of the Department of Education & Science, Department of Social Protection, Health Services Executive, Office of Public Works, numerous City & County Councils, Údarás na Gaeltachta and Educational Training Boards, generally on behalf of the project Architect or Engineer.

FiSCA is a member of the Institute of Fire Safety Managers, has Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurance. FiSCA is Vat registered and has a C2 Tax Clearance Certificate. All available for inspection upon request.
