Fire Protection Tanks – The thought of living through an ordeal that involves fire on any level is a frightening concept, but an undeniable reality in communities, cities, and states all over the United States. In states like California and Texas where there are dense areas of forest and large rural communities nature has ruled for generations and particularly vulnerable for a wildfire. In areas of any state referred to as rural where living is a bit off the grid and away from city or county-sponsored municipal services, a Water Tank used strictly for Fire Protection or Supression is the most effective and only way to protect your family, farm, or business. In the city, many codes require dedicated on-demand water sources for firefighting within buildings as well.
In many states now before a business license is issued there needs to be provisions made for water storage on the premise. Most tanks are governed by the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) As one of the premier dealers of fire protection tanks in the Western United States we are fluent with not only building codes but engineering details that will make your new water storage tank perform optimally for its intended purpose.
