The idea for FiSCA 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. FiSCA’s first aim was to provide an on-line service to building professionals for the procurement of Fire Safety Certificates. The service has since been extended to provide Fire Risk Assessments and to  procure Disability Access Certificates. Chris continues to study and graduated with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Fire Safety Practice from TCD in November 2014. He has undertaken training courses in Fire Risk Assessments and BS 9999:2017 and endeavours to develop useful skills for FiSCA’s clients as well as keeping up-to-date with the relevant legislation. FiSCA is now in it’s twelfth year of operation, testimony in itself that it’s providing a necessary & valued service to it’s growing repeat clientele base.
