Hose Reels in the Fire Industry

Hose Reels in the Fire Industry

Posted on Apr 11, 2017

For getting large quantities of water to a fire, a fire hose reel is indispensable. Easily bridging large distances up to 30 meters can make the difference between minimal damage and bankruptcy. The saying, “do more with less” is most certainly not applicable when discussing safety and organization in our fire stations. When lives are at stake, the right apparatus can make all the difference.

Responding to a distress call within the community and accurately responding in a timely and organized manner is crucial to the success of our fire departments. Firefighters and the communities they serve will find comfort knowing that the fire department is equipped to deal with any kind of emergency at any time – the proper hose and cord reels are most certainly not an exception.

Hose reels are used for a multitude of different applications in the fire department, including but not limited to: power cord hose reels to charge the electronics on the fire rescue vehicles, air hose reels to fill the tire on rescue vehicles, and reels mounted to the walls to assist with wash down procedures inside and outside of the station.

Hose reels provide an invaluable measurement of safety in fire stations and rescue vehicles. Fire fighters are under massive amounts of pressure in emergency situations and the proper reels equipped on and off the trucks provide the necessary safety and organization required to reduce the stress level in an emergency situation. Ensuring firefighters have the latest quality reels enhancing safety and fire station organization is critical to the maintenance of fire apparatus.
