Safety & Quality Control Department

ALERT: CFPC COVID-19 Response & Prevention

Amid the COVID-19 Outbreak, Commonwealth Fire Protection has maintained a substantial workforce in New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland construction sites, as their Governors recognized construction projects as “Essential Businesses”.  We have also been able to maintain a minimal workforce in PA completing emergency repairs and working on construction sites located at life-sustaining facilities.  We will continue to monitor the latest information from the CDC as well as State, and regional developments and work in partnership with Owners, General Contractors and Industries who are approved to continue their operations. Stay SAFE, Keep HEALTHY.
