Our Mission

As an e-commerce company, we strive to provide the ‘peace of mind’ necessary to ensure that all products sold by FireHoseDirect will not only meet, but exceed the specifications required to do the job. Our superior customer service center allows our customers to make an informed decision they feel confident about. We help our customers determine exactly what type of hose or fitting they need to best suit the job description. Additionally, it is our mission to always have the inventory available to ship the same day, at a competitive price.

Barry McConaghey, Founder and CEO

CEO / President

McConaghey brings a surplus of real life experience and product knowledge to the company he conceived and founded. As a firefighter constantly dealing with hazardous situations, Mr. McConaghey developed a unique insight and perspective into his ‘tools of the trade’ that surrounded him every day. He advanced to the rank of Lieutenant and served as Union President of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), in addition to being cross-trained as a paramedic. In 2011, after over 20 years of service, Mr. McConaghey used the very same knowledge he acquired to launch; with a proprietary internet sales model based on speed. Today, FireHoseDirect is the largest internet sales and distribution company of fire hose and accessories in North America.
