Industrial Emergency Services, LLC (“IES”) (http://www.iesllc.com) announced this week that the company has established two additional bases of operation with equipment and firefighting personnel to expand the IES foot print on the East Coast. The locations include Linwood, PA and Fort Lauderdale, FL. The bases adds to IES’s capability to respond not only for marine firefighting incidents as part of the alliance with SVITZER Salvage, but also to industrial and transportation customers such as refineries, chemical plants and rail.
“This new capability not only allows IES to support our existing customers, but also will allow IES to provide support to industrial facilities such as refinery and chemical plants and the transportation industry customers such as rail to support them in planning for incidents that may result in the release and/or fires involving flammable and combustible liquids and cargos such as crude oil and ethanol. IES has chosen to support this effort due to the need for increased industrial and marine firefighting resources on the East Coast and our high safety standards, response capabilities and specialized rail & industrial firefighting experience” said IES Fire Chief & Vice President of Operations, Tom Henning.
The addition of these resources will add to IES capability and enhance IES as a premier solution to industrial, transportation and marine firefighting solutions for our customers.
