One of the Largest Refineries in U.S. Gets Fire Protection Makeover

A large oil refinery in the Midwest needed to get their fire protection in check, so they called F.E. Moran Special Hazard Systems (SHS). When SHS showed up, they found that the fire protection systems hadn't been maintained in years and several were out of service. SHS has worked with them for 3 years to bring their fire protection up-to-date. Each year SHS has managed to reduce the dollars spent.
