When I needed an inspection and servicing of the fire extinguishers for my business I was fortunate to call Cooney's Fire and Life Safety company . JP handled everything in a timely and professional manner as well as educating the staff in Fire safety and the proper use of the equipment . I will continue to depend on him for yearly inspection and servicing and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of these services. Steve *
