RescueAir’s reputation for designing cost-effective, fail-safe systems is a direct result of our involvement at the early stages of a project. We’ve worked with many of the country’s top architectural and engineering firms to design systems that meet all code requirements, while maintaining the project’s structural and aesthetic integrity.

FARS Increase Efficiency and Enhance Safety
“It makes no sense to have highly trained firefighters lugging (air bottles) up and down the stairs instead of fighting the fire. FARS allows the assignment of more firefighters to rescue and fire suppression. I am convinced this system will help incident commanders make better use of their personnel at the scene of a fire, which means greater safety for occupants and firefighters.”

RescueAir Retrofits Iconic Montreal Olympic Tower
“The Montreal Tower is the tallest inclined tower in the world with a 45-degree angle. By comparison, the Leaning Tower of Pisa only tilts five degrees. So you’ve got some very interesting angles and spaces. That said, the FARS fits extremely well into an existing structure—even one as distinct as this.”

Community Stakeholders and Fire Service Cooperate on FARS Code
“The Bellevue Fire Department has always made firefighter safety a priority. The new FARS requirement was a real cooperative effort between the local fire service and community stakeholders. The result will be safer environments for firefighters to work in, which always has a positive impact on public safety.”

FARS Facilitate Smart Development
“(FARS are) an example of smart development” and a “growth equalizer” that will allow a small department to dedicate the maximum number of firefighters to battle a potential fire inside a new $365 million regional medical center.
