Industrial Emergency Services LLC (IES) says that as part of its ongoing nationwide expansion of land-based and maritime emergency response and related safety services, it has added capabilities on the East Coast to supplement its existing Gulf Coast and West Coast infrastructure.

Headquartered in Baton Rouge, LA, IES informs that the East Coast locations include Linwood, PA and Fort Lauderdale, FL. The bases add to IES’s capability to respond not only for marine firefighting incidents as part of the alliance with SVITZER Salvage, but also to industrial and transportation customers such as refineries, chemical plants and rail.

“This new capability not only allows IES to support our existing customers, but also will allow IES to provide support to industrial facilities such as refinery and chemical plants and the transportation industry customers such as rail to support them in planning for incidents that may result in the release and/or fires involving flammable and combustible liquids and cargos such as crude oil and ethanol. IES has chosen to support this effort due to the need for increased industrial and marine firefighting resources on the East Coast and our high safety standards, response capabilities and specialized rail & industrial firefighting experience” said IES Fire Chief & Vice President of Operations, Tom Henning.
