You could say fire protection is in our blood. When owner Chris Claggett graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in industrial safety, he already knew sitting behind a desk wasn’t the job for him. The early 2000s recession made job prospects bleak, so Chris went to work for his uncle who had recently launched his own fire sprinkler company, Advance Fire Protection, in Oklahoma City. 

Chris quickly realized he enjoyed all aspects of fire sprinkler system installation and took great pride in his work. His entrepreneurial spirit instilled in him a desire to own his own business someday, and when his uncle sold Advance Fire Protection in 2016, Chris and his wife, Julie, decided to launch Action Fire Protection, based in their hometown of Bristow. 

While Action Fire has quickly grown from a husband-and-wife team to a knowledgeable team of fire protection professionals with locations in the Tulsa and Oklahoma City metros, you still won’t find Chris behind a desk. He prefers to spend his days in the field working alongside the Action Fire team, serving the company’s growing number of residential and commercial clients on everything from system installations, to inspections, and repairs.
