Minnesota Fire and Security Contractor Accreditation—What Does it Mean?
There are several qualifying factors to become licensed and selected as a Minnesota Fire Protection Contractor. Brother’s upholds these requirements by:
- Having a managing employee (ME) ensure all work adheres to adopted best practices, standards, and fire protection guidelines.
- Having the managing employee or an accredited journeyman sprinkler fitter perform fire protection-related tasks
Ensuring fire protection system designs are performed by personnel of a Minnesota-accredited fire protection contractor.
- Maintaining and presenting the relevant permits for installation and modification works.
- Having liability insurance above $250,0000/person, $500,000/occurrence, plus $100,000 property damage.

- Paying the State of Minnesota a surcharge. (0.2% of project cost for all permits granted through the local communities which conduct protection plan reviews on their own.)
- Paying all License fees.
The installation, servicing, and maintenance of fire protection systems play a key role in saving lives and protecting residential and commercial properties. We are dedicated to serving our communities and are honored to have been selected as a choice Minnesota Contractor this year.
