In Canada, which has one of the largest forested areas in the world, You can not travel 5 km without running into a large body of water.
So, Why doesn’t forestry utilize this water to extinguish the fires? Simple…Because the pumps needed to move that amount of water, weigh in excess of 10,000 lbs! Which means they are far to bulky to go off road.
But…what if someone had a pump that weighed just 500 lbs yet, could out perform the larger one? Well, Forestry would finally have the very tool they need to stop these fires in their tracks and they would sign a contract with whoever had that patented technology.
…Alberta Forestry just offered us that very contract! and with your help, we can move forward on a larger scale than my company can by itself.
Our pump has a total weight of between 304 and 500 lbs depending on options.
The pump shown is mounted to a modified 200 hp side by side. With this setup (1,500 lbs) it can be Dropped into a hot zone via the lightest Helicopter at Forestry’s disposal or can be driven into “ANY” terrain, which we have extensively tested and proven.
