When I needed Bilingual marked Fire Equipment for a group home Firelite Alarms came thru

One of my Institutional clients decided to help the Federal Immigration & Naturalization Service   with taking in some young south American children during this summers illegal immigration surge .
 Till they can be adjudicated and either deported or granted asylum.
Normally I always install Pull stations and fire horns which are printed in English but since these 2 homes would have those who read and speak only Spanish this could be a problem so I started looking around for a manufacturer of bilingual fire equipment and Fire-Lite came thru  a Honeywell fire group company makes Pull stations which are bilingual as you can see in the picture below.
The stations are fully UL /NFPA compliant and can be ordered in several different languages which can come in handy if you have customers with such a need.


  1. I think that more places need to have fire alarms that are labeled like this. In my area the majority is Spanish speakers. I think it would be helpful to have more bilingual alarms in the stores around here because many of the people have trouble speaking English.

  2. There are a lot of fire equipment products out there. I cant say which is the best. The most important thing is it can be used to get rid the fire effectively. Thanks.
