About TSF Fire Equipment

TSF Fire Equipment (formerly Tom Smith Fire) is a service-disabled, veteran-owned wholesale distributor committed to providing outstanding service and the best deals on high-quality firefighter gear and personal protective equipment (PPE) to the men and women who put their lives on the line each day.

A Company Rooted in Service

In 2006, former USAFE Chief of Fire Protection Tom Smith capped off his distinguished career with the US Air Force by launching Tom Smith Fire, an operation dedicated to putting the best equipment into the hands of firefighters across the country. Through his integrity and customer focus, the company grew into the leading supplier it is today, serving high profile customers like the US Department of Defense Fire Department.

Passing the Torch from Tom to Todd

In 2011, 28-year US Air Force active duty veteran and former Chief Master Sergeant Todd Katz joined Tom Smith Fire to help usher the company into a new era of service. For six years, Tom and Todd worked side by side to advance the company’s mission. In 2016, Tom retired and officially transferred ownership to Todd, who remains committed to longstanding company values and meeting the equipment needs of the nation’s first responders.
