About Us

Our online retail stores empower you to easily access the gear you need when you need it. Offline, we have a full-fledged outside sales team that is committed to serving first responders from Maine down to Virginia and westward towards West Virginia and Ohio. Our retail showrooms are staffed with experienced public safety professionals who provide you with the opportunity to test, try on, and take home specialized products. On top of that, we also have our multi-truck service team, custom graphics department, in-house embroidery specialists, all committed to serving those who serve their communities.

When our Co-Founder and Chairman Jim Witmer founded Witmer Public Safety Group, he did it out of passion. Having been a firefighter for many years, and currently Chief Emeritus, he has guided our company in our decision-making processes through his passion for firefighting, community, and making the world a better place. No matter how much we grow, a large percentage of our staff will always be active or retired firefighters, as well as law enforcement agency members, EMTs, and paramedics. That’s how we operate…and it’s how we live. We’re colleagues. We’re family. We understand your needs. We know our products. And we’ll never compromise on quality.

As always, we’re prepared to meet or exceed your high expectations in every way. Our motto is Equipping Protectors with Passion™, and we continue to uphold this promise by providing the industry's best equipment and supplies to the individuals who serve to ensure the public's safety.
