Fire Extinguisher Services
Fire extinguishers can save lives and property by quickly putting out small fires while you wait for help to arrive. However, they must be in good working order and be used correctly to perform these important tasks properly. Fire Extinguishers are considered the first line of defense before the sprinklers or fire alarm in your building have a chance to work. Having the correct fire extinguisher for the hazard is essential. Tampa Bay Fire Equipment offers a complete line of fire extinguisher services in the Tampa Bay area.
