Jerry Allen is the president of Delta Fire Systems, a full service fire protection company with offices in Salt Lake City, Utah; Reno, Nevada; Twin Falls, Idaho; Idaho Falls, Idaho; Boise, Idaho; and St. George, Utah.
Before Jerry began work at Delta, he served in various roles at Western States Fire Protection, another APi Group Company. He started in 1995 as a designer for the Austin, Texas branch office. Due to a strong work ethic, desire to learn, and the passion to fill in gaps, Jerry was soon promoted to Project Manager and within a couple of years was promoted to Operations Manager. In 2005, Jerry was promoted to Area Manager. During his ten years as the Area Manager, Jerry and the Austin Team grew this once struggling operation into one of the top branch offices of Western States Fire Protection.
Jerry began his career in fire protection in 1990 working for a small fire protection company in Amarillo, TX. Prior to that, Jerry served four years in the U.S. Army as a light infantry NCO with the 82nd Airborne Division. Jerry participated in the 1989-1990 invasion of Panama “Operation Just Cause.”
