JEROME FIRE EQUIPMENT CO.
When it comes to serving the needs of protecting local communities from the dangers of fire, Jerome Fire Equipment is there to support you in every way. Since 1967, Jerome Fire has provided equipment, product training, and service in the many facets of fire suppression and fire protection.
Our Company History
Jerome Fire Equipment Co., Inc. was founded in 1967 by Manny Jerome, selling and servicing fire extinguishers out of the family home in Clay, NY. In 1971 the business acquired 8 acres of property nearby and expanded its operations into firefighting equipment and fire apparatus sales and service. In 1995, Manny’s son Russell joined the business and subsequently took over business operations upon Manny’s retirement from the company in 2001. Russell credits the ongoing success of the business to his team of 35 dedicated, caring, and customer-focused employees.
Today, Jerome Fire operates from a 15,000 square foot facility of administrative offices, product warehousing, a full service fire extinguisher and fire suppression systems maintenance facility; DOT licensed hydro-testing, a SCBA service and repair center, and a 6 bay fire apparatus service center. In addition to in-house services, Jerome Fire is equipped with a Company Fleet of 12 GPS enabled vehicles which deliver our products and services directly to our customers.
For over 50 years, Jerome Fire has proudly supported the fire protection needs of firefighters, businesses, and homeowners of the Central and Northern New York region.
