NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT the Department of Financial Services, Division of State Fire Marshal has received the petition for declaratory statement from Cold Fire Law Enforcement Florida LLC., on or about March 3, 2009.The petition seeks the agency's opinion as to the applicability of Section 633.061, F.S. as it applies to the petitioner.
Cold Fire Law Enforcement of Florida LLC., does not install, inspect or repair any fire extinguishers. They only sell Cold Fire. Their product is designed to augment the systems already in use by the departments and does not replace them. It is simply another tool used by first responders that will aid them in gaining valuable time should the product be needed. Sumter County Fire Rescue interprets the State Statutes as Cold Fire Law Enforcement of Florida LLC needing a dealer’s vendor license. Sumter County oversees many counties and is preventing Cold Fire Law Enforcement from moving forward at this time until they have clarification. Cold Fire Law Enforcement of Florida LLC does not maintain, repair, inspect or install any fire extinguishers. Their product is NFPA and UL approved and tested to be used as is.
