Fire Ranger, a Fort Lauderdale-based fire safety company, has partnered with Resolve Maritime Academy to provide modern, state-of-the-art fire safety equipment and services as part of Resolve’s certification programs. 

In addition to training support, Fire Ranger will provide Resolve facilities with equipment, inspections and services, ensuring that the academy’s training equipment exceeds standard safety recommendations, according to a company press release.

“The greatest asset an academy can deliver to our students and our stakeholders is a real-as-it-gets training experience,” stated Chauncey Naylor, director of Resolve Maritime Academy. “Having a partner who ensures our training tools are cutting edge delivers more value to our students’ educational investment.”

Resolve Maritime Academy, in Fort Lauderdale, provides training for U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW), and Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) certifications. Clients include captains and crew working on megayachts, cruise ships, tankers and tugboats.

“Being able to partner with a learning institution specializing in land and maritime firefighting provides us with a first-hand perspective of our products’ use in the real world,” stated Glyn Day, director of marine services at Fire Ranger.

In related news, Fire Ranger has forged a partnership with Sea-Fire Marine, a Baltimore-based manufacturer of maritime fire detection and suppression systems. While Fire Ranger has been a distributor of Sea-Fire products since 2004, the new partnership will see the two companies share co-branded booth space and collaborate on providing onsite fire protection equipment and demonstrations at Florida boat shows.
