The Fireline Corporation is a Maryland corporation founded in 1947 by John S. Waters. As a pioneer in the fledgling fire equipment distribution business, John Waters soon saw the benefits of offering exemplary service and high quality products at a fair price. Fireline has lived by this standard for more than 70 years and the tradition continues today. A family business now in its third generation, Fireline is embracing new technologies, while holding true to the values and quality practices that have kept the company successful throughout the years.
Fireline serves the Baltimore, Washington DC and Northern Virginia markets and has expanded both its territory and its portfolio of equipment and services. Fireline proudly offers the industry’s highest quality brands such as Notifier, Amerex, Kidde, Ansul, and Vesda. Factory trained technicians are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. NICET certified designers and staff ensure the highest quality standards are held within the company. Fireline’s services include, equipment sales, design, installation, inspection, and repair.
The Waters family has always believed in the importance of supporting both the company and the industry. In order to give back to the industry, all three generations of Fireline Presidents have served, or currently serve, on boards and committees for various industry trade associations as well as the advisory councils for Fireline’s many manufacturers. These organizations include the National Association of Fire Equipment Distributors (NAFED), the Fire Suppression Systems Association (FSSA), the Life Safety Alliance (LSA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Automatic Fire Alarm Association (AFAA).
