ARFF Apparatus Application to wild land Firefighting
This the question how can we think outside the box?
I have had the experience these past 5 year helping the county fire dept. handle brush fires on our islands. to see how effective an ARFF truck can be goto youtube: Molokai fire kalamaula (steven buse and david gomes video.
They caught the action as it happened i was the driver in the truck.
we were task force ARFF. crew of three, A Capt. in the utility truck, AFEO and FF in the E-One 1500. This is a good setup for night ops We did about 30 Quick knock downs.
The utility truck is used for scouting ahead of the E-One 1500 making the decision to commit or not. this works great he also looks for water source to refill. see link below.
