Structures Served by FARS
We’ve designed and built Firefighter Air Replenishment Systems for buildings in 21 states across the U.S. and in Canada.
Rescue Air Systems specializes in the design and engineering of firefighter air replenishment systems (FARS). FARS are a standpipe for air permanently installed within a building. They deliver a safe, instant, and constant supply of air replenishment to firefighters in large structures during a fire or any emergency where air quality is compromised. Without access to breathing air, firefighters cannot survive in toxic, smoky environments.
FARS are the future of building-installed firefighter health and safety systems. FARS allows firefighters to refill air bottles quickly and under full respiration. The systems are intended to refill air bottles within two minutes allowing more time for fire attack, search and rescue, and other life-saving tasks. Access to constant air replenishment greatly reduces their risk of exposure to the toxic effects of fire smoke.
Code Standards for FARS
Buildings in 21 states and Canada are equipped with FARS, and FARS are required in more than 100 jurisdictions across the country. Every year, more cities add this requirement to their fire codes.

We collaborate with the best and the brightest.
We work with the nation's leading architects, engineers and builders to meet FARS code requirements and equip large structures with these systems. We also have a network of certified installers throughout the country who install our systems in buildings in their local geographic areas.
