About Us


The big idea…

In 2011, FireResQ, Inc was founded on a shoestring budget in small upstairs office. By carefully analyzing internet search patterns and results, we recognized a market opportunity to sell fire hose online. What would grow to become one of the largest e-commerce destination for fire hose and equipment in the United States.


Let’s stock everything!

Why should firefighters and fire departments have to wait for fire equipment? So we decided to start stocking the majority of items on our websites so we can ship them the same day. If that wasn’t enough, we opened fulfillment centers throughout the Country to reduce the transit times for all orders. Now, with all of our current websites, we can deliver 95% of our in stock orders with one or two days.


A new way to shop for fire equipment

After retiring from the fire service after twenty-years, CEO / Founder / Firefighter Barry Mcconaghey wanted to switch into the business side of the fire industry. He quickly realized the need for fire equipment for the volunteer fire departments. Knowing that sixty-five percent of the United States Fire Departments are volunteers and mostly running on small budgets, he wanted to give back by offering competitive pricing for critical fire equipment to local fire departments directly from manufacturers. So he decided to focus on fire hoses. Being without the up to date fire equipment may mean life or death for firefighters. So he started to help smaller departments with their fire hose supply.

Today we continue with the same philosophy to help smaller fire departments with all their fire equipment need with the addition of Barry still is the CEO with business partner Daniel Weber as Vice President, we continue our best effort to offer competitive pricing and the best customer service ever!

We have ordered multiple times from FireHoseDirect ….always very helpful. Got us out of a jam on one occasion by over-nighting several adapters. Highly recommended.

I love the fast service and great customer support every time I place an order!

Great pricing and fast shipping. Had what I needed in stock and shipped out the same day.
