We are the only comprehensive FR/PPE supplier and distributor nationwide with Managed Safety Uniform/PPE Programs. You decide up front what your employees must choose from, so they are safe and compliant on the job. We can structure your program to provide a predetermined number of FR clothing sets and/or budgets and can include specific hardhats with logos, gloves for specific jobs, boots, hearing protection, new hire kits, ERT and station wear apparel, laboratory jackets, bunker gear and more. We tailor the program to your purchasing needs. We work closely with Procurement, Fire Chiefs, Maintenance, HSE professionals, Accounting, I.T. and ERT to build programs tailored to your business, and then turn it on.
South Coast Fire and Safety will provide you with a uniform and PPE program that is very easy to use, easy to implement and much easier to manage. With the parameters you’ve established in place, we then work directly with your employees on all orders, delivery, questions, returns and exchanges. They can place their orders on a user-friendly custom site we build for you, or in a punch-out catalog linked to your internal purchasing and accounting functions, by email, phone, in person or fax.
We take on the work of managing your PPE/uniform programs, so you don’t have too.
South Coast Fire and Safety is a family owned and operated business with over 3 decades of experience dedicated to keeping your employees and facilities safe and compliant. Fire and Safety are in our name and we began with one line of bunker gear for industrial firefighting teams many years ago. As guidelines and regulations expanded, and the need for state-of-the-art safety products and equipment rose, our business grew by reputation. We are very grateful for the status awarded to us by our customers.
We have always focused on solutions for our customers and have worked to meet the demands of your everchanging business. With our ecommerce platform, managed spend uniform/PPE programs, innovative and industry leading manufacturers, experienced customer support managers – you choose a company dedicated to providing you with “old fashioned” service, advanced safety products , compliancy expertise, and a partnership that brings tremendous value to your business year after year.
South Coast Fire and Safety PPE and FRC programs provide your management with absolute control over what is spent on PPE and FRC. Employees, departments, facilities and/or regions are given specific order limits that are firmly set by you. If an employee wants to purchase from us beyond the limits established, they can do so with a personal credit card, PayPal or cash if it is approved by you.
Consolidating your PPE and FRC uniforms through a single comprehensive supplier generates cost efficiencies, volume purchasing discounts, reducing accounting and administrative responsibilities, reduced shipping expense and more. We have the technology to build your site as a punch out catalog, to integrate with your e-procurement program if you choose.
Your employees will have the clothing and gear that meets the image and safety requirements established by your company. With conservative budgets, employees can purchase clothing that will last and look great for much longer than with rental and mass industrial laundry programs. When laundering FR clothing at home, separately, and with instruction, the life and integrity of FR uniforms are extended. If industrial laundering is policy, we can help you with that too. If your employees have any concern about gear or a garment for repairs, replacements, exchanges they will contact us directly. If they need to know when they can order more garments or gear, they contact us directly. We take the administration hassle of FRC and PPE off your hands, and that saves time and money.

Although we embrace technology, your time is valuable. We don’t believe automated phone systems provide you with the expedient service you deserve. During business hours, a person familiar with your business will answer the phone when you call-always have and always will.
Your company has a national accounts salesperson, an inside customer support team and online specialists familiar with your business. We work with your leadership and employees personally day after day and year after year. Overtime we become partners, and as a trusted part of your team, we earn your trust by delivering the goods and services you depend on each day.
Revisions to your PPE and FR uniform programs occur the same day you request them, if you have a large number of new hires or a hiring freeze, changes to your budget, or operating procedures – we adjust quickly to your business. We don’t lock you into contracts that limit your ability to manage your business as it dictates. We are here to support you.
From onsite fit garments to onsite trainings – we provide the support your business needs. We assist in the launching of managed apparel/PPE programs to management and operators, train on FRC care and maintenance and provide onsite fittings for large new hire initiatives. We are there at request for your safety meetings and initiatives to discuss compliancy and our personal experience with it.
We work upfront to ensure orders are received and processed correctly and quickly. If an item(s) needs to be exchanged for a different size or returned, we will take any unworn, unwashed and un-embellished item(s) back for 30 days after delivery for a full refund at no cost to you.
We build, host and manage your ecommerce store and will provide you with a printed catalog of your uniform/PPE program as designed and approved by you.
Your business locations vary. We can ship to an employee in a remote location or to their home, we can deliver bulk orders together on-site each week. Let us know the flexibility your business needs.

Choose who can purchase what, where and how for your business. You tell us. Do some departments and employees pay by P-Card, some by PO, some by credit card?

We help manage all that and more upfront for you.
Choose how your company places orders – by calling your dedicated service team, utilizing your user and mobile friendly custom online store, manually ordering by email, fax or in person.
We maintain each order’s details for 5 years, so you have access 24/7 to who has purchased what and when. Employees can track what they have ordered personally and anyone with administrative authority can pull the data and reporting you need – whenever you need it.
