Founded in 1945 – Locally Owned and Operated
Since 1945 our company has been locally owned and operated in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. In 2001 Tim Hammes purchased the business from Dale Marthaler. At that time it was a modest extinguisher recharge business. Since then, Hammes Fire & Safety has become a major competitor in the area installing and monitoring fire alarm and security systems for a vast array of clients in southeast Wisconsin. Hammes Fire & Safety works to keep the community secure in a friendly, personal and cost effective way.
Tim Hammes – Owner
Tim Hammes was born and raised in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, spending his high school years at Central High School. After Tim graduated he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, and completed a full term of duty. He served our country during the Persian Gulf War aboard the U.S.S. Iowa.
After the navy, Tim set his sights on becoming a fire fighter. When his necessary schooling was completed, Tim started working at the Blooming Grove Fire Department. While there, he took a second job at a fire and safety business out of Madison. Here Tim realized what he wanted to do – start his own fire and safety company. Tim searched until he found the right place to launch his business in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. Currently he grows his successful business with his wife Kris and is the proud father of two sons, Carter and Eli.
