EZPack HipoKit™ and the FlexCon™ are ideal solutions for water supply to fire trucks.
When fighting fires in rural areas or forests the most important issue becomes the water supply to the fire trucks. A typical fire truck holds 500-1,000 gallon (2,000-4,000 liter) of water. When hydrants are not available for online water supply the fire trucks need to leave the “line of Fire” thus reducing the “Time On Fire” and spending more time on traveling back and forth for water supply.
Water transportation heavily relies on a fleet of tankers and water trailers. Such fleet is both expensive with significant maintenance cost attached to it. In order to be ready for peak demand or sudden emergency needs the investment involve in such fleet is very high.
EZPack offers a new concept of pushing water to the front line by using the HipoKit™ – fast deployment kits that convert any mobile flat platform to a modified water tanker (up to 28,000-liter/7,500-gallon), or using the FlexCon™ – 20’ standard containers filled with 24,000-liter/6,000-gallon of water.
EZPack HipoKit and the FlexCon™ are ideal solutions for water supply to fire trucks.
The concept of Water-Push:
- The fire trucks stay close to the fire line.
- The water is pushed forward.
- The HipoKit™ and FlexCon™ are called into action and being modified within hours (the first one is ready after an hour).
- The Water-Push platform are shuttling between the fire line and the nearest available water source for a constant water supply.
- At the end of the event, the equipment is stored in a relatively small and compact storage area, ready for the next event.
The Water-Push kit converts any flatbed platform into a water tanker in only a fraction of the regular cost. Between fire events the platform can be used for other transportation tasks. (Extremely better return on investment).
