Standby Fire Protection
Our Secret To Extinguishing Costly Fires Quickly and Effectively
All of our firefighting units are equipped with a twin agent firefighting system. This system is beneficial for standby operations as it is a self sufficient mobile firefighting unit requiring no water supply, therefore, more cost effective for the customer. All units are also equipped with a continuous foam unit for large pumping operations, well control, tank fires, or any other emergency situations.
Our firefighters also have extensive in-house dry chemical and foam firefighting training. Firemaster’s training program is ongoing and we use outside resources such as the Ansul Fire School, Marionette, Wisconsin; University Of Texas, A&M; University of Reno, Nevada and fire etc. Emergency Training Centre. In order to provide a safe and reliable service to our customers, we feel it is our obligation to continue our training program to develop new technology and techniques. It is our philosophy to protect the people, the property, and the environment.
