A firefighting lance that allows firefighters to pierce all known structural materials and apply water to an internal fire, enabling firefighters to control a fire situation prior to making an entry into a building.
The UHPL fire extinguishing technique combines abrasive water jet cutting with water spray extinguishing. The high-water jet pressure allows for the cutting abrasive to rapidly penetrate all known construction materials, creating an efficient high velocity firefighting water mist, once the penetration has been made. The method offers a safe attack on interior fire and on fire gases (smoke) from an outside position.
An alternative method of fighting fires with foam when supplies of water are restricted.
Compressed Air Foam Systems have several benefits away from the traditional use of Water to fight fires. With a combination of Water, Air and foam solution, a normal tank supply of water can last approximately 8 times longer. The benefits also include reduced fire, water and environmental damage. Additionally, the throw of a firefighting jet can be in-excess of 24 meters which reduces the exposure to heat stress and other dangers exposed to firefighters. Overall the use of CAFS can significantly enhance the firefighting capacity of our operational vehicles.
Portable recording devices worn by operational personnel during Fire & Rescue Service activity, protecting Operational crews as well as members of the public.
The Body Worn Video Camera we use are the D3 REVEAL Media camera. It can be used to record relevant activity at any Fire related incident or training venue. The recorded media can then be used for Training, Development or Investigative requirements.
A firefighting lance that allows firefighters to pierce a number of structural materials and apply water to an internal fire, enabling firefighters to control a fire situation prior to making an entry into a building.
The Delta Fog Spikes are specifically designed to allow operatives to attack and improve pre-entry compartment fire conditions by rapidly reducing internal temperatures significantly reducing risk to firefighters and greatly limiting damage.
This is placed within the hearth of a fireplace or log burner and used similarly to a flare. It lets off a powder that can help to stop a chimney fire.
Fire Suppression Device that can be used in a chimney or log burner. It is designed to provide rapid knock down and extinguishment by producing a product combination of zinc powder and Sulphur that coats the inside of the chimney, forming a barrier between the fuel and oxygen.
Upgrade and roll out of new respiratory ½ masks, to protect our Operational crews.
We are in the final stages of rolling out the 3M 6500 ½ mask. This replaces our current dust masks to give greater protection to our operational crews, limiting the exposure to particulate contaminants at incidents.
Battery powered Hydraulic Rescue Equipment enables a quicker response and activity compared to Petrol reliant hydraulic rescue equipment.
To provide Operational crews with a portable cutting tool that is more manoeuvrable than hydraulic lined cutting tools. It has the flexibility to be used in remote locations. We have continued to update and research into advancing equipment, e-draulic rescue equipment helps to reduce our environmental impact as well as enable equipment to be used quicker in emergency situations.
A dedicated box containing equipment and articles that will help to manage exposure to contaminants.
With the increasing knowledge, impact and exposure of contaminates at Operational Incidents, new Incident Hygiene boxes are being rolled out to each front-line appliance in HFRS and IWFRS. This will help Operational personnel to manage the exposure of particulate contaminants at operational incidents
An escape hood that can be given to members of the public to assist moving through a smoke-filled environment.
A fire escape hood that provides a seal around the head. Using a filter reduces toxic gasses (smoke) from being breathed in, allowing the person escaping a smoke-filled area to breath clean filtered air.
Portable smoke blocker which can be used in a variety of situations to restrict the flow of smoke and heat within a building.
Designed to be placed across a doorway within a property to prevent the flow of smoke from one area to another. Can also be used to restrict the entry of fresh air into a compartment reducing the risk of a backdraft or flashover, or to provide a safe egress in high-rise stairwells where a door may be compromised due to fire hose.
