Commonly known first as an Industrial Fire Response company, Williams Fire & Hazard Control maintains a diverse roster of specialized fire response personnel including marine firefighters who have seen dozens of shipboard fire and water borne emergencies requiring both structural knowledge of marine vessels as well as tactical and logistical prowess that is unique to these incidents.
Williams Fire & Hazard Control has traveled the Gulf of Mexico, the North Atlantic, Africa, the Orient, the Pacific Rim and beyond to respond to Land and Marine fire emergencies.
As an industrial firefighting company with three generations of flammable liquid firefighting assessment and extinguishment experience including over 200 successful responses, Williams mission is twofold — extinguish fires effectively and build equipment that exceeds all challenges as seen on those fires.
“With a long standing reputation across industry as getting the job done safely in the shortest possible time, our standing mission is to Minimize Risk and Maximize Success as we work to defend client property, the community, and the environment when challenged by the world’s worst industrial fires”, Dwight Williams — Founder of Williams Fire & Hazard Control.
“We sought to fill an industry need for a quick and effective independent response force to quell the threat of hazardous flammable liquid fires and hazardous material emergencies,” Dwight says.
“We have support personnel around the world and can mobilize an emergency strike force within hours of receiving an emergency call from any point on the globe. We pride ourselves of course on our successful history of fire extinguishment, but also on the relationships we have with our clients – in helping them understand their risk and preparing for a crisis. Whether showing them more effective tactical procedures for their facility, organizing infrastructure and logistical plans, or supporting proper equipment and supply lines for their protection, ... we take an interest in their effective abilities and compliment it with ours to better manage an emergency.”
