Fire Fighting Water Tanks (Helicopter Tanks and More!)
Fire hydrant tanks—tanks that can be easily filled by first responders through a fire hydrant—are greatly beneficial, but what happens when fire strike in rural areas with no fire hydrant access? In these remote, rural areas first responders need access to reliable water storage through other means.

Other Fire Fighting Solutions
While folding frame tanks are excellent reliable water sources for first responders, they are not the only means of fire suppression. We carry a multitude of fire fighting tools that can help first responders.
Water trailers and water skid sprayers provide excellent water pressure and fire suppression capabilities. Fire suppression water skids can be placed in the back of UTVs and ATVs to go into rural and remote places. With fire hoses, boom sprayers, hose reels, pumps and engines, you can experience incredible water pressure and power to fight fires.
Fire Gel is a super polymer, gel-based spray that is used to coat the outside of building to act as a fire retardant when wildfires and forest fires threatened. The great thing about Fire Gel is that it absorbs a great amount of water and is ultra effective against flames and active fires. However, for it to live up to its full potential, it must be kept wet and misted regularly.
Water Strainers are a great accessory and resource for first responders and operators who need access to clean water. In local bodies of water, muck, sand, dirt and debris can interrupt the flow of water and damage equipment. However, with our supply of water strainers, you will be able to find the accessories that best fits your water tank equipment.
Helicopter Tanks are a pyramid-shaped blivet water tank that is made from heavy duty vinyl and is easily transportable by helicopter or truck. While folding frame tanks are compact and easy to set up and supply an abundance of water, there is one thing that they cannot do—they can be airlifted. The Helicopter Tanks offer up to 600 gallons of emergency water storage that can be lifted by a helicopter.
