    Are you looking to start your own business, or going to work for someone?
    If you don't currently have a Mass. C and D License, you may want to
    consider working for someone to learn the ropes. The ups and downs are the
    monies involved to get up and running.

    stick around and read the posts herein!

    I doubt that MA is much different than any other state, except specifically
    what licenses you need, all the other crap that comes with owning a small
    business will be much the same.

    Do you have a business plan as of yet? This industry, not so much fire, is
    very diverse. What areas of security are you thinking of entering? Fire is
    life safety and there is no diversity other than what is in NFPA. Keep your
    company insured, which is probably required in the licensing statute anyway,
    with liability (million $ plus) E&O, completed operations coverage, and
    Workers Comp. on your employees. Some states require seperate licensing for
    burg and fire. Tell us where you are going with this and then we can spell
    out the ups and downs and any pitfalls, otherwise we could be talking
    volumes of info. on this subject. You will get a lot of different opinions
    here. What may work for one, may not work for another, but there is much
    info that will pertain to anyone in the biz, regardless of their individual
    business plans. Get back with us.
