Located in Gateshead NSW, the company believes that it is imperative that fire fighters have the best tools to do their important jobs.

They supply the best of the best to rural fire brigades, emergency services, ambulance services, police services, mine sites, gas and oil industries, marine, defence industries, and more.

Managing Director Nick Foran said Fire Response is very proud and grateful to be acknowledged in the community.

“We felt that the award offered an excellent opportunity to honour and recognise the hard work and loyalty of our team over the last few years,” Nick says.

“It’s rewarding to see our business, which started as only two people a few years ago, recognised among the best in the region.”

“For the business, it shows what our whole team is doing day in day out, is world class.”

With an established reputation in the community, Fire Response have been providing expert advice and knowledge since 1989.

But Fire Response are more than just a fire-fighting equipment company.

Nick said the company is deeply rooted within the community.

“We employ local people and use as many local businesses as we can which boosts our local economy,” Nick says.

“We foster a great relationship with our neighbouring businesses and share our resources with them as appropriate - our forklift is in high demand!”

“This, in turn, helps them more efficiently manage their businesses and the benefits flow through the economy.”

“We love looking after other businesses and our community, and with the next bush fire season fast approaching, it’s so important to be prepared and to listen to what the fire agencies are saying”, Nick says.

“Respect their knowledge and experience.”

“The devastation we saw last year illustrates how important it is to prepare early and have a plan.”

“Leaving everything to the last minute will not help anyone and endangers lives, so please act”.
