Our Mission

We must, without exception, provide the "peace of mind" necessary, to insure our customers that all products sold by FireHoseDirect will meet and exceed the specifications required to do the job. In some cases our customers might be somewhat unsure what type of hose or fitting best suits their needs. To make sure the customer selects the product that absolutely meets the demands of the assigned task, we will always be able to provide the expertise our customers need to make an informed decision. Once our customers make their product selection, it is our mission to have the inventory available to ship the customers purchase the same day, at a competive price.
