In 2006, the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) amended its Uniform Plumbing Code to include a requirement for a firefighter air replenishment system in buildings over 75 feet tall. That action set Rescue Air Systems on a course of explosive growth, as 14 states and thousands of municipalities began requiring the system. To keep pace with demand, RescueAir built a network of certified installers and began licensing its FARS technology.

More than 500 structures across the United States are equipped with FARS, spanning more than 80 jurisdictions and 10 states. RescueAir has partnered with some of the country’s top developers, architects and engineers. High profile projects include Infinity Towers in San Francisco, Electronic Arts headquarters in Redwood Shores, CA, the San Jose Civic Center in San Jose, CA, the Department of Justice building in Sacramento, CA, the PeaceHealth Medical Center in Oregon, the Arizona Public Service headquarters in Phoenix, AZ, and the Promenade Condominium project in Boynton Beach, FL.

Additionally, RescueAir systems have been integrated into the training facilities of a number of fire departments and fire service academies, including the Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute (MIFRI) at the University of Maryland, the Glendale (AZ) Regional Training Facility, and the training facility of the Phoenix Fire Department.
