New Fire Extinguisher Venture

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Retired city firefighter Fred Whipple is embarking on a new business in his hometown: Saratoga Fire Extinguisher, which is slated to start operation on June 19.

Currently, no business in the city provides these services and Whipple’s company will focus on National Fire Protection Association standards regarding portable fire extinguisher sales, service and inspection.

Prior to retiring, Whipple had started a similar business but due to many factors, he put it on hold until retirement. Whipple says he looks forward to providing this much-needed service to businesses and residents alike.
