Corporate History 
North America Fire Equipment Company, Inc. (NAFECO) was founded in 1968 by Jerrell Oaks.  It began primarily as a service business, providing fire extinguisher services to local factories and businesses.  It has developed throughout the years into a full line distributor of Fire, Police and EMS apparel and equipment as well as being a distributor of KME Fire Apparatus.  

NAFECO headquarters is located in Decatur, Alabama with nine (9) branch offices located in the Southeastern United States.  We inventory many of our products in the Decatur, AL warehouse for immediate shipment.  We pride ourselves not only on the apparatus, equipment and services that we offer, but also in the care and service that we give to our customers before, during and after the sale.  We want to ensure that our customers receive the equipment that is desired and the service that they deserve.  We have an inside sales staff that works diligently on a daily basis to promptly process orders and answer any questions that our customers may have.
From fire extinguishers to fire apparatus, NAFECO has you covered.  Our Fire/Rescue Division supplies Fire, Rescue, and EMS departments across the US and abroad with the equipment, service and expertise needed to protect property and lives.  We service everything we sell including fire extinguishers, SCBA’s, fire hose, rescue tools, fire apparatus, and much more. 
No order is too big or too small!  Give us a call, e-mail, fax or visit our website or feel free to stop in and visit our large showroom.  Our store hours are 8 AM – 5 PM (CST) Monday-Friday.   Our customer service staff will be glad to meet you and discuss all of your apparel and equipment needs.  If you can’t make it in for a visit, give our outside sales staff a call.  We will be happy to stop by and meet with you and your department.
