Jack McLoughlin, Founder, passes

November 7th, 2022

It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Jack McLoughlin. Jack was the founder of Fire Research. He was an inventor and had been in the forefront of technological innovations in the fire service industry.

His engineering background and creative thinking helped him create a company whose sole purpose was to advance and modernize equipment in the fire service. Jack had one intention, and that is to make everything better and safer. His lifelong contributions to the fire service are a testament to his dedication and love for the fire service.

Throughout the years, Jack had offered support to the firefighting community and aided others in ways most of us will never hear about. Jack will be greatly missed, and our thoughts and condolences go out to his family.
