Securing peace of mind for more than 60 years

Fire Chief Equipment Company. Inc. was founded in 1955 as a single-person company that serviced fire extinguishers. In 1968, Leo and Rob Ruch purchased the business and set a new vision for Fire Chief Equipment to be a complete fire protection provider.

Over the next decade, our company progressively developed the training, personnel and licensing to add fire alarms, sprinklers, extinguisher cabinets and other fire safety related products and services to its capabilities and offerings.

Today we continue to celebrate our company’s success as a leader in the industry that has chosen to be specialists in the field to service the critical safety needs of our clients.

Protecting life and property one client at a time.

As a family based business, we appreciate every opportunity to serve our clients with the most exceptional and personal attention that they have earned and deserve.

Our entire business motivation stems from a real commitment to protecting life and property rather than simply selling fire protection equipment and services.

Globally headquartered in Redmond, Washington, Fire Chief Equipment works with clients thorough the United States and around the world. We are committed to deliver integrated fire protection solutions that ensure the safety of our customers’ world-wide commercial and industrial operations … and the people and their families who are a vital part of these operations.

Fire Chief Equipment Equipment’s standards of excellence – from the hiring and training of our personnel to the constant fine tuning of our delivery model – is the benchmark of our success. We service the nation’s finest organizations and as a result are seen as a partner in their success and a defined consulting resource.

We are sensitive to the fact that the person responsible for selecting the organization’s fire protection provider has a real personal stake in its performance.

Your one stop resource for all of your fire prevention needs.

Your position, prestige and very livelihood are all dependent on system reliability; therefore we offer all of the products and services from one provider to ensure you and your company are not at risk.

Our job will be accomplished only when you have real peace of mind.
