Every second counts when responding to an Airport Rescue Firefighting Incident; and let’s face it, there’s never a hydrant conveniently located next to a downed aircraft. The average ARFF truck holds between 2,000 and 3,000 gallons of water and is capable of dumping that water in less than 2 minutes.
We’d be willing to bet you have never heard the term “Ready. FIRE!, Aim.” The order in which we do things DOES make difference. So why do we fight fire that way? In the time it takes to properly aim and align the remote-controlled turret nozzle while modulating, ARFF operators can waste up to 10% of their available water supply. With the FireTech Light Cannon, you can aim the turret, THEN turn the water on, minimizing waste and putting more water from your tank on the target.
