Fire Ranger, a leading South Florida distributor for Sea-Fire Marine fire
detection and suppression systems, has been acquired by Summit Fire &
Security. The strategic move positions Fire Ranger as a division of Summit,
with new resources and infrastructure to expand marine business nationally,
including applications for Sea-Fire products in unrepresented market
segments. Summit will in turn concentrate on land-based systems. Ernie Ellis,
Sea-Fire president, made the announcement.
“Throughout their regional market, Fire Ranger is a well-known brand
and a top distributor of Sea-Fire products,” said Ellis. “This transition over to
Summit Fire & Security will provide transformative opportunities for them to
grow beyond South Florida and is a promising development for Sea-Fire.”
Headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Fire Ranger is a leading
supplier of fire and safety equipment and services for recreational and
commercial vessels and dockside applications. Regularly seen at boat shows,
the company has a longstanding agreement with Informa Markets to provide
fire safety equipment to notable events. Its team of fully licensed and insured
technicians provides inspections, certification, supply and installations,
training, and consultation. Its website is
“We’re excited for Fire Ranger to join Summit Fire & Security and
pleased to have Sea-Fire as a supportive partner,” said Neil Cooper, Summit

Fire & Security fire life safety manager. “The three companies have worked
towards the same simple goal for decades: to safeguard people and property.
Our successful marine business approach was of particular appeal to Summit,
and for them, we can now expand from regional to national growth
opportunities in untapped markets.”
At Summit’s recent national meeting, Cooper and other Fire Ranger staff
introduced the comprehensive Sea-Fire product range. Sea-Fire Marine was
one of the sponsors of the event.
