I’m in the fire business.
And the people business.


The areas I cover

My work takes me all over the UK. I live right in the middle of the country, so I can easily get to locations from Scotland to the South Coast.

What people say about me

We’ve used Rowans on our site for many years as a consultant and to carry out our servicing, training and risk assessments. Jude is very knowledgeable and it’s clear she has a genuine interest in her work. I’d highly recommend her training; her enthusiasm and passion for the subject is infectious. Having attended many training courses by different suppliers, her approach is a refreshing change. We look forward to continuing our relationship for many years.

Judith Evans from Rowans Fire has worked alongside Bloor Homes for 20+ years. During this time she’s provided an exemplary service to Bloor Homes for risk assessments of site and offices and fire training. We’ve found Judith to have a business minded and pragmatic approach and her knowledge is invaluable in supporting our business needs.

Robert McNee

Bloor Homes

Rowans Fire have provided precise and abundant advice and assessments to our organisation for a number of years. Such is the quality and punctuality of their work, time and again, that we hold their consultation in the highest esteem. Throughout their time providing Fire Safety advice to our organisation, they often go beyond their immediate remit to tie in other aspects of H&S that would potentially impact us. I can only say from my experiences that this is a gold standard service, nothing less.

Matthew Hathway

Rawlins Academy

Rowans Fire are our ‘go-to’ fire specialist. They help us ensure compliance with Building Regulations and current legislation. We involve a fire specialist in an early design team meeting, as this avoids issues arising further into the project when alterations can be costly.

Rowans Fire understand the construction process, not just the technical requirements, so they are able to offer a friendly, pragmatic approach. The cost of their involvement has been offset several times over by the savings made. Or, more precisely, by the lack of unnecessary expenditure compared to other projects where mistakes have been made during the design process.

Chris Coultas

Wildgoose Construction

We’ve been working with Jude from Rowans Fire since 2008, and I have to say that her advice and support have transformed the way we manage fire safety in housing and now our corporate assets. Jude is very easy to work with, she has a very good knowledge base of fire safety and has built up an exemplary knowledge of our buildings. The quality of her work is outstanding, from risk assessments, training to general fire safety advice.
