Marine Fire Equipment

"Man's best friend at sea"
WELCOME!

marine fire equipment, marina, mca, uscg, abs, boat, survey, certification, suppression system, service, regulations, engine room, extinguisher, vessel, service, equipment, maintenance, mega yacht

Specializing in serving the marine community in the "Venice of the Americas" since 1984, I have had the unique experience of thousands of on board equipment evaluations, function tests and certifications as well as countless agent cylinder hydrostatic tests, halon recovery, valve rebuilding and troubleshooting as well as complete installations of CO2, Halon, the new FM-200 and FE-241 systems.

The earth gets smaller!

While having a thorough working knowledge of the rules and statutes of the American Boat and Yacht Council, National Fire Protection Association and USCG is essential to properly servicing U.S. flagged vessels, the growing complexity and international aspect of the marine industry requires the additional study of the requirements specific to the Megayacht Code, MCA, Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), IMO, ABS, STCW, as well as environmental regulations that affect the fire protection industry at large. One has to do a lot of homework and truly have a passion for the subject matter to become a reliable source for the proper maintenance and documentation each vessel may require.

The liabilities get larger!

The most critical service you may be responsible for ordering in the course of maintaining a vessel is the annual maintenance examination of the on board fire suppression systems and portable fire extinguishers. Knowing what to order is a job for a specialist familiar with marine applications. The certification process must begin with a complete evaluation from an industry professional with your best interest in mind. This is the only way for the untrained person to intelligently order these services. Let an expert do it for you. I maintain that untrained persons should not be ordering these services! The liabilities associated from ordering improper service, intentional or not, necessitate proper documents from a marine expert in the fire equipment industry.
My ultimate goal is the PROPER maintenance of your equipment to assure the highest level of safety for the benefit of the entire marine community.

This site was put together with the intention of making my contact information available to my friends and customers (who literally span the globe) from here in the South Florida area 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is also a valuable resource to the entire marine community. I have put together a great links list which is basically everything I use to look up regulations and information that I need every day in the course of routine equipment evaluations. If you are involved in the marine community as a surveyor, broker, captain or involved in ordering annual maintenance as an owner, agent or working in the parts dept. of a boat yard, please bookmark this site or add it to your "Favorites"- you'll find yourself using this as a shortcut to the links for vessel manufacturers, industry links, finding regulations, current weather conditions, specific product sites, publications and organizations all dedicated to the fire and/or marine industry and community.
