Fire Industry Gives 2012 Economy Mixed Reviews talked to several experts in the fire market industry to get a feel for how things went in 2012 and a glimpse of what 2013 might hold when it comes to the business side of public safety services.

As for the future, Reese thinks 2013 will be much like 2012 but he’s hoping there will be some pent up demand in 2014.

“It takes a couple of years for the fire service to catch up with the rest of the economy,” Reese said.

“That’s probably when things are going to be stronger,” Reese said. “We can hope.”
