Our COVID-19 Response

All Fire Codes and Regulations Remain the Same and Will Stay in Place


At Venus Fire Protection & Safety Services, we have been closely monitoring the news and reviewing the latest guidance provided by various authorities including, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the Fire Department of New York (FDNY), and other government officials.


Since some businesses are still operating as an essential business, Venus Fire Protection & Safety will continue to service and inspect portable fire extinguishers as well as provide safety products. All codes and regulations remain the same and will stay in place as per this letter from the FDNY dated March 24, 2020. Additionally, we will continue to provide personal protection equipment (PPE) to those businesses and clients who require them.


Below are the latest guidance from the NFPA and DHS regarding essential critical businesses which includes fire protection and life safety systems:

How We Are Keeping Our Staff, Customers, and Partners Safe


We are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our employees as well as the customers and business partners with whom we interface during this COVID-19 epidemic. According to the latest guidance from the New York City Fire Department (FDNY), all codes and regulations will remain the same and will stay in place.

To that end, we wanted to share the measures we are taking at Venus to properly respond to the crisis as it unfolds:

  • Our office and staff are diligently following guidance and best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

  • We have increased cleaning and sanitizing on all commonly touched surfaces in break areas, rest rooms, and locker rooms. We continue to thoroughly clean and sanitize all equipment daily.

  • We have closed our office to walk-in customers and only have essential staff working in our office under reduced hours to promote continuity and ensure that we are still meeting the needs of our customers who may still need fire protection and safety equipment.

  • Our non-essential staff have been working remotely while all employees will be joining all meetings via phone and video conferencing, and will remain available to answer any questions or concerns.

  • Our drivers and service technicians are practicing social distancing practices, whenever possible. They are practicing increased hygiene practices and are equipped with additional disinfectant and sanitizing wipes.

As the situation unfolds, we will continue to carefully monitor the news and recommendations from the CDC and other authorities, and take rapid, proactive steps to ensuring the highest safety standards are enforced. Rest assured that we will communicate any changes to you quickly and transparently.

Fran Kukla

Founder and President/CEO


People have asked how I went from being in the legal and medical fields to opening and running this business.  To me the answer was simple: I wanted to be involved in helping protect my community rather than deal with the aftermath of negligence, poor planning or just not knowing what to do.  I know that to be successful, I needed to "walk the walk" (I am fully licensed and certified) and personally selected my team of experienced individuals that share my vision and passion for what we do.


As the founder and owner of Venus Fire Protection & Safety, I personally ensure that Venus delivers the highest quality product and services at the best prices.
