Fire Safety

Best Fire Equipment considers our customers to be part of our family.  We want you to be as Fire Safe as our real family members, so towards that end we will post articles, information, and links to other websites that we believe may be of interest to you and your family or friends.

"Your Fire and Life Safety is Our Business" is not just our motto. We mean it!
We hope you'll find the information below useful.


Fire Season
Now is the time to ensure that you have the proper DEFENSIBLE space around your property, especially if your living in a rural area.  Most, if not all, Fire Districts recommend (and many REQUIRE) a MINIMUM cleared, defensible space of 100 Feet, or to your property line if less than 100 feet.

Check out the Cal Fire's Guide:  Wildfire Is COMING. Is Your Home Ready? 
to make your home ready for fire season or paste the URL into your browser's address window: http://www.readyforwildfire.org

This is also a good time to consider adding one of our
FOAM-FAST Wildfire Pre-Treatment Kits
to your Fire Season Defense equipment.
