Pye-Barker was proud to acquire Advanced Fire in December 2016. Founder Ken Gaines started Advanced Fire as his second career, after completing a life of service with the fire department. Ken brought his passion, and the knowledge gained through his previous experience, to the fire extinguisher business and within seven years developed a reputation as the best quality provider in the Daytona market. Acquiring Advanced Fire meant the addition of more quality trained technicians, along with a fully certified DOT testing facility, to the Pye-Barker office in the area. Pye-Barker is now the only company you need to call for all of your fire protection needs in the Daytona, FL area.
