IF it works and IF it doesn't have a duty cycle that will prevent it from running for long periods of time, you might be able to make a shop air supply by using a really large storage tank. Set it up for 100 to 150 psi max and rely on the volume of the tank to offset the low cfm. Find an old propane tank or something designed for 300 psi or more, and put the tank in a place away from your normal work area.
In other words, sell the thing and get one designed for your uses...
A fire dept won't be interested in that unit, in my opinion. Too much liability. We have one like the other post described at our fire department. Uses four 6000 psi bottles in a "cascade" system. Ours cuts off at 5000 psi. I can fill six 4500 psi bottles without using the compressor.
Whatever you do, don't mess with high pressures like that if you don't have the tools, materials, and expertise. Hurt happens fast with that stuff.
