Accessing enough of the wet stuff to be able to put out the red stuff can be a problem for fire brigades.
These days less so for Fire & Rescue NSW.
Their new Hytrans Bulk Water Transport Systems gives easy access to all water sources including hydrants.
Their 1,500 metres water supply system can be set up in 20 minutes.
F&R NSW uses 150mm hose which can be recovered easily and quickly.
Water supply up to 8,000 litres per minute and up to 1000 kPa.
The system can supply aerials and appliances, act as filling station for fire trucks or feed a water curtain hose.
It can also pump out tunnels, parking garages, cellars or dams.
F&R NSW wasted no time and has started training straightaway in Australia, CFA in Victoria as well as industrial fire brigades use Hytrans mobile water supply systems.
