First Due Service:

When we smell gas or we smell smoke, we depend on firefighters. They are reliable professionals who help to keep us safe. However, in order for those firefighters to be able to show up and help us, they need safe equipment. That is what we do here at First Due Services, LLC.
It is our job to go through and make sure that the equipment these professionals rely on is safe and up to the best standards possible. We focus on testing two main pieces of equipment for firefighters to make sure they are in good working order and ready to use at a moment’s notice. We test out fire hoses and ladders that sit on the ground to ensure they are not breaking down, as this annual inspection is required.

Ladder & Fire Hose Testing Syracuse, NY

There are several things that go into fire hose testing, including:

  • Unloading each hose from its apparatus to inspect it completely.
  • We make sure each hose passes NFPA #1962 standards.
  • We then reload each hose back to its apparatus.
  • Each item will come with a complete report including all necessary details to that item, including fire hose testing pressures and results of the visual inspection.
  • When necessary, we can repair soft suction hoses in the field.
  • Our equipment is state of the art.
  • We stencil hoses by using a numbering system that shows the hose size.
  • Our company is fully insured.

When considering ground ladder testing, there are also several things to keep in mind:

  • We make sure all of your ground ladders are up to NFPA #1932 standards.
  • We come out to you and do the testing at your facility instead of making you come to us.
  • You will get a full report with all necessary details once the inspection is complete.

There are several fire hose testing companies that you could choose from, but First Due Services, LLC is the one you want to go with. When you need Ladder & Fire Hose Testing, Syracuse, NY, call us to get the job done right.

howlett fire department howletthill nyI wanted to get a note to you to tell you how pleased the membership and Officers of the Howlett Hill Fire Department have been with your hose testing services.

As you know, the HHFD has been having all of our fire hose tested with your Company for years.

It seems that there isn’t a single person who passes thru the engine room with out both noticing and commenting on how nice our fire hose is loaded on the pumpers.  The hose is loaded very percisely which allows us to carry and deploy large amounts of hose in a rapid and safe manner.

I think we have been utilizing your service for something like ten years now.  The group of young men who come and perform the work have been great to work with.   The effort you make to communicate with us before the work is performed seems to work well.  We have a few special requirements that pertain to hose colors and storage locatons and your people take care of these needs with out any issues.

Your staff arrives at the appointed time, performs the task at hand and after they leave you wouldn’t have known they had been at the station if it were not for the exceptional hose loads that are left behind on the pumpers.

Your knowledge of the NFPA requirements for hose testing and  the doucmentation that you provide us with when the job is completed is pricessless.  We have had both our ISO represenative and our insurance carrier comment on how complete our hose testing records are.  These records have helped us achieve our ISO 3 rating !

Thanks to you and your crews for a job very well done.
