April 7, 2010 - City Fire Participates in Construction Intervention


May 4 appearance will be on new series, “Construction Intervention”

East Hanover, NJ –  April 7, 2010 – City Fire Equipment Company of East Hanover is proud to announce its association with “Construction Intervention,” an all-new Discovery Channel series scheduled to debut April 13.  “Construction Intervention” follows Charlie Frattini, New York construction extraordinaire, and his trusted team of contractors and designers as they find businesses which are in danger of failing due to botched, delayed or impossible construction jobs and rescue them from their construction woes.

City Fire Equipment Company was involved in the construction process for the story about a restaurant in East Rutherford, New Jersey, by providing fire safety installation and inspection services, labor and materials.

The episode will air May 4 at 10:00 p.m. eastern time.  Check local listings for the channel.

City Fire was working for the restaurant prior to involvement by “Construction Intervention,” the only contractor employed by the business that was fulfilling its obligations.  When “Construction Intervention” stepped in to rescue the restaurant and project, City Fire was retained to assist the show’s crews.  City Fire crews provided sprinkler system relocation and inspection work and also donated fire alarm parts and labor.

“Commitment to customer satisfaction and quality service has been at our foundation since 1952,” said Paul McGrath, City Fire president.  “While this customer was experiencing so many difficulties with other service providers that ‘Construction Intervention’ had to rescue the project, we were the one contractor that fulfilled our obligations and were retained by the show, in fact going above and beyond for the benefit of the client.  I’m very proud of that.

“It also is a great honor to be associated with a new and exciting television series such as ‘Construction Intervention,’ a professional such as Charlie Frattini and the Discovery Channel.”
