China Fire Awarded UL Certifications for Its Line Heat Detectors

July 13, 2009

BEIJING, July 13 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — China Fire & Security Group, Inc.
(Nasdaq: CFSG) (“China Fire” or “the Company”), a leading total solution
provider of industrial fire protection systems in China, today announced that
three of its linear heat detectors (“LHD”) have passed the Underwriters
Laboratories (“UL”) laboratory test and were awarded UL Certifications.

China Fire’s three products that were tested and certified by UL were its:
Nonrestorable Fixed-Temperature Line-Type Heat Detector, Restorable
Fixed-Temperature Line-Type Heat Detector and Restorable Rate of Rise &
Fixed-Temperature Line-Type Heat Detector. These products have many
competitive advantages over peer products, including China Fire’s proprietary
“Rate of Rise in Temperature” technology that differentiates temperature rises
caused by fire hazards from rises caused by environmental or
non-dangerous sources, their superior operating distance and their automatic
notifications sent to the monitoring system when maintenance and repairs are
needed. China Fire’s proprietary “Fixed-Temperature” technology also enables
its LHDs to veritably “fix” their alarm temperature, so that it is not
affected by heated cable length and ambient temperature as in competing
products.

China Fire’s LHDs have already won dozens of patents worldwide and enabled
the Company to become one of China’s leaders for national fire protection
products. Domestically, China Fire’s LHD products have influenced the
industry standards and its proprietary LHDs have come to be considered
irreplaceable in fire solution systems for the iron and steel industry.

“Achieving certification by Underwriters Laboratories, a world leader in
product safety testing, is an important milestone in our company vision of
persistent technology innovation and greater market positioning,” commented Mr.

Brian Lin, Chief Executive Officer of China Fire. “As we mentioned during our
previous earnings call, China Fire is actively pursuing fire protection
projects and product sales in international markets, as well as diversifying
the revenue stream and customer base by expanding into other verticals. UL
certification will give China Fire a competitive advantage that enables us to
gain more market share and better pricing in international markets and
effectively help the Company expand into more industrial verticals and more
complex environments. Moreover, UL Certification also serves as a criterion
for the Company to be recognized by the government with a National Hi-Tech
Company award, which would enable the Company to benefit from numerous
favorable governmental policies. We believe that our cutting-edge technology,
proprietary patent protection and our leadership in influencing national fire
safety standards will continuously bring strong market position and lasting
advantages that allow China Fire to deliver strong, sustainable, long-term
financial performance, and ultimately to reward our investors with shareholder
value.”
