“Shield fire protection, inc is professional, courteous, and most importantly, they perform quality workmanship“

"As a Stationary Engineer working in the Central Business District of San Francisco for nearly 17 years, I’ve had
the privilege of knowing and working with Mike Menis of Shield Fire Protection, Inc. for the better part of that
time. Mike and his team are professional, courteous, and most importantly, they perform quality
workmanship on what I would consider one of the more critical systems a high rise facility contains.
Mike and his team have performed many different jobs both at 60 Spear Street and during my time at 345
California Street. We rely on Mike and his team for Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance. As well as, to make
repairs to deficiencies found during the annual and five year inspections.
It has been my pleasure knowing and working with Mike Menis and his team. I look forward to working with
them for years to come."

“prompt, professional and very knowledgeable“

“My name is Danny Krzyzanowski, I am a Local 39 engineer for (27) years, a chief engineer for over (15) of
the 27. During my career I worked with a lot of sprinkler fitters and their associated companies. The
crew at Shield Fire Protection, Inc. is one of the best I have ever worked with. The President Mike Menis
is prompt, professional and very knowledgeable in current codes and how sprinkler systems are
supposed to be installed and maintained. His work ethic and professionalism are mirrored by the office
staff and crews in the field. Shield Fire Protection, Inc. completed the (5) year sprinkler certification at
the high rise I maintained in SF and the project was completed, on time, under budget and the close out
report was detailed and easy to interpret. The follow up proposals clearly explained the issues cited and
the best way to go about fixing it. If you’re looking for a sprinkler company that will be there in your
time of need and be a partner in protecting your asset – Shield Fire Protection, Inc. is the company for
you. Thank you”

“Mike is dedicated to the well-being and benefit of others.“

“As a company, SHIELDFPI has come alongside of BayLight which I have the privilege of leading. Being a church that is only one year old, one of the biggest obstacles is the financial aspect of launching from scratch. SHIELDFPI has given financially to BayLight since the beginning and has played a crucial role in the success of our young church. Mike took a step of faith to start SHIELDFPI shortly after the pandemic began. I believe the company has prospered because of that faith, and because Mike’s drive behind the company is to glorify God. The positive reputation of SHIELDFPI is rapidly growing, and I have personally seen clients who are benefiting from the success.

As a friend, Mike has been a great one. I have had the privilege of knowing him for over a year now. He is dedicated to the well-being and benefit of others. When I need his help with something, there is no hesitation to jump in and do what he can. Mike is a problem solver. Being a mobile church means we set up and take down our equipment each week. That has presented some unique challenges. With each problem that we face, Mike doesn’t stop until a solution is found. I also appreciate his professionalism. Everything he does is done very well. He doesn’t skip over things that need attention. When others might take a shortcut, he makes sure that the proper steps are taken to ensure a first-class product.

Both BayLight and I have greatly benefited from SHIELDFPI and Mike. I believe you and your business will as well.”
