Drop-In Mobile Defense System for Neighborhoods in wildfire prone areas. Perfect for UTVs or Small Trucks.
A tank, a live hose reel and/or crosslay, a portable fire pump and/or a compressed air foam system (CAFS), with an engine: these can be combined into a single one-piece assembly that can be slipped onto a ATV or UTV bed, truck bed, trailer, or into a body and used for flowing water and or foam on a structural fire, car fire or wildfire. The most common wildland and urban interface fire engines in North America combine a small truck with a water tank and a high performance portable pump. Municipal/industrial fire departments and all forestry fire authorities have been using these drop-in units for decades.
These skid unit systems simply drop right in to the back of virtually all the most popular Utility Vehicles on the market. Having a UTV that's equipped with one of these skid unit systems is very common in neighborhoods in Southern California and usually purchased by the HOA to be used in emergencies to put out spot fires or to spray homes before evacuations are ordered. Homeowners stayed back and used these mobile UTV skid unit systems to successfully defend their properties from being destroyed in Malibu California during the Woosley Fire.
Dimensions: 43" Length x 44" Width x 30-7/8" Height
