DF-Andrew Mitchell

Fire Electrician


From repairing fire alarms, to attending on-site faults and breakdowns, Andrew makes sure all fire safety equipment is running smoothly for all DEM clients.

He heads to various sites across Sydney about four times a day. When asked to describe his role, Andrew says, “it’s all reactive maintenance – you just drop what you’re doing and go.”

The UK-born electrician made his way from Northampton to Australia in 1996, where he started his career in the fire industry. He took a liking to the professionalism that DEM exuded and so he decided to join the team.

When Andrew isn’t putting in the hours as Fire Electrician for DEM Fire, he loves a good running session.
