Emergency Response

With the ability to respond globally to catastrophic fire events, US Fire Pump has quickly become one of the world leaders in Emergency Response. 

The company can mobilise Emergency Response teams and flow more than 100,000 gallons per minute with its standby equipment, something they have worked extremely hard to achieve. 

This equipment on standby consists of Submersible pumps, Boost pumps, Dry Chemical trailers, Direct Foam Injection units, Firetrucks, and the ability to deploy over 6 miles of industrial large diameter hose for challenging water scenarios.

US Fire Pump has also strategically stored foam in 6 locations across the Globe. From the locations, the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia can be served.  

Emergency Response experts

Boosting an already robust array of equipment, the company also employs over 60 Industrial Firefighters ready to respond when duty calls. US Fire Pump’s Industrial Fire Fighting Specialists consist of experts who have a wide field of experience from flammable liquid bulk storage, flammable/combustible gas bulk storage to onboard ship firefighting. 

Additionally, US Fire Pump’s Haz Mat Specialists allow their teams to be prepared for the hazardous materials so often encountered in the field and during post extinguishment operations. 

Chris Ferrara-President/CEO US Fire Pump states, “US Fire Pump has made a conscience investment in our Emergency Response assets. No two emergency incidents are alike, and equipment needs vary widely.

“For instance, on a response we recently were called to, the water source was more than 1.5 miles away. With our 10,000 gallon per minute submersible pump and boost pumps we were able to lay 12” hose at 1.5 miles to achieve suppression. 

“Coincidentally, during that event we were called to a second emergency response in a different State. Because of our inventory of equipment, we were able to deploy the needed resources and assist the customer in their efforts…again while simultaneously fully involved in another major event. 

“This is why it’s important to invest in your equipment and take the approach that We can never have enough equipment for emergency response.” 

In the last two years alone, the company has responded and successfully extinguished the largest fire events the United States has seen in decades. 

Outside of the United States, US Fire Pump has also been called upon to advise and respond to emergency operations and has done so with success. In the event of an emergency, US Fire Pump can be the resource needed to assist. For 24/7 assistance call their emergency hotline at +1-225-209-6551.
