Improved safety when branch is out of sight of the pump operator
Essential equipment for breathing apparatus wearers. By adding flow meters to the high pressure hose reels you can guarantee the correct flow rates in all situations. Essential for tactical firefighting.
The primary driver for this work was the safety of firefighters and to ease the operation of the pump. It was quickly established by the team that there were also some considerable environmental benefits from developing flow into and out of the fire appliances.
