Key Hose is devoted to firefighters around the world. Our mission is to provide the best hose and equipment to firefighters. We have partnered with the best training, equipment and consulting companies in the USA.

- FIRE-TEC was established by firefighters in January of 2008. The company’s main focus was to train firefighters worldwide. Through this endeavor and our on the job experience of over 20 years we have had the opportunity to work with some of the best and worst fire equipment in the industry. This inadvertently gave us the ability to test, evaluate and recommend fire equipment to fire departments, manufacturers, and dealers alike. So soon we found ourselves consulting throughout the world on equipment, department SOP’s, and of course we never stopped training.
