Code Red Consultants’ 2023 “Red Tie” holiday party was a night to remember! Our team members and their families gathered for a fun night of casino games, delicious food and incredible memories at the Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton, MA. This holiday party was extra special since we also celebrated our 10th anniversary.

We proudly hosted our first-ever Boston FPPM Bridge Class! This training equipped industry professionals with the essential knowledge needed to successfully serve as Fire Protection Program Managers for construction projects in Boston. Congratulations to our team for hosting this highly important, informative, and successful event as part of our 10th-anniversary celebration supporting some of our values – Public Safety, Client-Centeredness, and Solution-Driven Approach! Please keep an eye out for future offerings of this training.

As per our time-honored tradition, Code Red celebrated Halloween by hosting our highly anticipated annual Costume Contest. This year’s event was nothing short of a spectacular celebration of creativity and imagination. This year the Best Group Costume was awarded to “Star Wars: A New Hope” and the Best Individual Costume was awarded to “Forrest Gump”. 

Code Red demonstrated its commitment to breast cancer awareness by wearing PINK throughout the month of October both in the office and out in the field. The collective efforts of our team not only brought attention to this important cause but also helped to meet our donation goal towards finding a cure.


The WPI campus played host for our annual Team Building Event. As Code Red celebrates 10 Years in business, we took the opportunity to reflect and reconnect in the place where our collective passion for the Fire & Life Safety Industry was born. The day kicked-off with a gathering at the Fire Protection Engineering Department, situated within the Gateway Park complex, Gateway II, which was also established in 2013. From there, we divided into small groups for a campus scavenger hunt and wrapped up the day with a classic field day! From 4-legged races to textbook wrapping, and even a live-action Hungry Hippos game, the competition was intense!

Family is one of Code Red’s main core values and our time spent together is never wasted. This summer, we gathered at Kimball Farm in Westford for a tented BBQ and little something for everyone in the family from Mini Golf to Bean Bag Toss to Bumper Cars!

This year marked Baystate Children’s Hospital 31st annual golf tournament. Code Red Consultants was happy to sponsor their fundraising event by having James McLaughlin, Jason Hopkins, Zach Blanchard, and Jake Smith play a round “fore” a great cause. Great weather provided a fantastic day on the course filled with camaraderie. This tournament helps make a difference in the lives of the youngest patients at Baystate Children’s Hospital.  These differences come in many shapes and sizes; helping advance research in pediatric health, purchase kid-sized equipment, and create friendlier experiences for the children who pass through Baystate Children’s Hospital each day. We look forward to continuing to sponsor this event!

The team at Code Red continued their annual tradition of ensuring Boston’s marathoners stay hydrated by volunteering at the mile marker 3 hydration station for the 127th running of the Boston Marathon. This event is always fun, involves team building and is a way we give back to the community.

March brought us together at Code Red Headquarters for our annual St Patrick’s Day Trivia event. Our extraordinary host, James McLaughlin, led us on a captivating journey through a wide range of topics from animated TV shows to everything green. The atmosphere was on fire (pun intended) as teams competed head-to-head, with the tension building until the very end. The ultimate victors emerged after a thrilling tie breaker question. How tall is the Statue of Liberty anyways?
