60 Years of Extinguished Service
2016 marks two important milestones for Safety Boss Inc.
Founded in 1956 by K.J. “Smokey” Miller, SAFETY BOSS has grown from a single fire truck operating in Alberta to one of the world’s elite companies for well control / blowout control and hydrocarbon firefighting.
The reasons for our success are simple. We have better equipped fire suppression systems, more seasoned firefighting veterans and more technology behind our name than any other company in the country.
It has been 25 years since Safety Boss made their mark on the world stage capping 180 wells in 200 days during the Kuwait oil field fires in 1991. Safety Boss’ use of our “Smokey” Series fire trucks was unique and allowed for much quicker extinguishing of wells. This was the primary reason for our quick outpacing of other companies’ efforts. The Emir of Kuwait rewarded Safety Boss with the extinguishing of the last well on the Project in November 1991.
