In Gaelic 'Dion' means protection…

Dion Fire Safety Security Ltd. was established by Murdo MacDonald, who returned to Stornoway in 1990 after many years in the south.

Following time at sea and in the Northern Police, Murdo spent 20 years in security service with several national companies - the latter 16 as Group Security Director with London based trading conglomerate Cowan, de Groot Plc.

Dion offer you a comprehensive service based on training, qualification and experience.

Trying to keep abreast of the latest fire safety legislation can be a real challenge for small companies, Murdo provides a fire prevention, safety equipment and training service. Dion has its head office in Tain and Murdo splits his time between this office, Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, Portree on the Isle of Skye and in his spare time he covers the rest of Scotland!


Dions clients include large corporations, councils, housing associations, churches and community centres, restaurants, hotels, offices, workshops, taxis, fishing vessels - the list is endless.

No two days are the same for the Dion Technicians, as Murdo could tell you! He came around a corner in Lewis to be faced with a client with smoke billowing from his car engine. Murdo took a fire extinguisher and promptly put out the fire, the client commented, "You arrive and I haven't even called you - how's that for service!"

Murdo joined IFEDA and BFC so he could network with other members. "Being so remote, it's useful to chat to other members of the fire trade. Only two reps have ever visited - guess who gets our business!"

Dion Fire Safety Security Ltd. would welcome your custom!
