How We Began
The business was started in 1949 by a fireman. Charles (Beau) Lewis, my dad and also a fireman, bought the business in 1961. In 1971, Dad helped to write the Fire Extinguisher Law of 1971 for the State of Texas.
Brad Lewis started helping his dad with the business when he was only four years old. On his 18th birthday, Brad passed the test in Austin to receive his Fire Extinguisher License.
