Supplying All Your Fire Protection Needs

At 1st Defense Fire and Rescue Services, we pride ourselves in being able to provide and supply all your fire protection needs. With over 30 years of experience in the film and TV industry, we are able to offer lots of different services that ensure that whatever your fire safety requirement, we can provide it.

We supply fire engines and fire fighters for both in-shot and behind the scenes work in film and television, with our vehicles ranging from standard-issue fire trucks to land rovers and vans. Additionally, we offer all types of fire extinguisher hire for locations, prop trucks and special effects, and have all the latest styles of fire service uniform. We also provide water bowsers for wet downs as well as pumping water for special effects crews to make rain effects.

We work closely with production, health and safety advisors and special effects supervisors to ensure maximum safety at all times. To help safeguard this, we also offer a risk assessment and training service so that, in the event of an unexpected fire breaking out, your team is confident enough to tackle a small fire safely and efficiently using the fire extinguishers in your premises.
