First Responders !

We’re a home inspection company staffed by certified firefighters that care about people and where they call home. We’ve learned a thing or two about what makes a home safe and sound. So, we couple our training as both firefighters and home inspectors to provide comprehensive and timely home inspections that you can count on.

Are You Really Firefighters?

You bet! All of our home inspectors are also certified firefighters. Who else has seen a wider variety of homes inside and out? As firefighters, we know:

These are the precise skills used when performing a home inspection. It’s a natural fit.

How It All Started

FFHI started out of co-founder Austin Nolen’s college apartment. It was originally geared towards helping his friend and co-founder Tyler Kelley supplement his income as a firefighter. Their deal was, Austin would handle the business end and Tyler would perform the inspections. They planned to split everything and focus on this as a side business. 

Austin decided to consult his long-time friend Jonathan Hinton about the idea. Jonathan liked it immediately. The very next day, Jonathan built an impressive business model opening Austin’s eyes to the scope and scale of what FFHI could be.

The vision for FFHI is to become the #1 employer of firefighters in the United States.

Helping firefighters create an additional income stream along with providing home buyers and agents with trusted, professional inspectors is the core of the business today.

He spent several years in the electrical and construction industries and is the son of a retired firefighter. He decided to combine those backgrounds and his respect for the firefighter profession to start FFHI.
