Family Owned & Operated

The Hernando Fire & Safety Equipment Company was founded in 1981 by Betty and Ray Ferguson. Betty and Ray retired to Brooksville, Florida in 1976, following a twenty year Navy career, and sixteen years as a distribution center manager for S & H Green Stamps.

Ray began by selling small hand held fire extinguishers in their community. Then with two employees, they grew the business locally for seven years.

In 1988 Kent and Karol Ferguson, present business partners, purchased the business after serving twenty years in the U.S. Air Force. Now, twenty six years later, and with ten professional, skilled technicians and office staff, Hernando Fire & Safety Company is the strong, honest, successful business seen today!
