About Mac’s Fire & Safety
At Mac’s Fire & Safety, we’re not just on the job, we’re on a mission. Our staff includes professionally trained and experienced former firefighters who not only are knowledgeable about what is needed to save lives and fight fires, we’re also dedicated to the safety of our firefighting brethren.
Mac’s Fire & Safety Equipment Company, Inc. began as a family-owned business in Fall 1964 to fulfill the need for fire extinguisher sales and service in the Litchfield, Illinois, area. The first two locations for the business were small shops in the residential area of Litchfield. We then moved into the downtown business district with a store and shop during the mid-1970s. We expanded our service to a multi-county area when we added fire suppression systems and service for restaurants to our services and capabilities.
In 1978, Mac’s Fire & Safety relocated to a larger building at 104 South Jackson in Litchfield. We added more products and services, including fire and security alarm systems, closed circuit TV, two-way radios, fire department supplies, rescue tools, and apparatus.
In 1994, Mac’s began manufacturing Class A Wetting Agent, which is added directly to the booster tank, and Training Foam. These items are available in one quart to 55-gallon containers.
In 2000, in order to better serve our customers in both the areas of sales and service, Mac’s constructed a 12,000-square-foot building adjacent to our existing building.
