Primetech Rapid Response Tactical Vehicle Grows in Popularity

Cumbria FRS latest fire service to introduce system for improving fire-fighting efficiency

The Primetech Rapid Response Tactical Vehicle continues to grow in popularity. A Land Rover based version, called the Cobra Intervention Vehicle, went into service earlier in the year with Cumbria FRS. The new system, supplied by Primetech, is already delivering a massive improvement in firefighting effectiveness.

The Primetech Rapid Response Tactical Vehicle is giving emergency services new options for responding to emergencies in faster, more effective ways.

The vehicle’s state-of--the-art firefighting equipment, supplied and integrated by Primetech, uses a high-pressure hose to blast straight through brick walls and tackle major blazes on the other side. Firefighters can identify the location of a fire inside a building using infra-red images.

The Cobra cold cutting unit on the Cobra Intervention Vehicle (CIV) then uses a lance to shoot an ultra-powerful jet of water loaded with an abrasive cutting substance to blast a 1.3mmsized hole in the wall.  Water is then injected through the hole as a high-pressure mist to absorb the heat and gases from the fire.

The system can reduce the heat in the fire area from 700 degrees Celsius to 80 degrees in just 40 seconds. The system is far safer for firefighters, who can tackle fires from outside rather than entering a burning building, and the instant dowsing reduces the risk explosions of fire. The system instantly limits the spread of a fire and gives the Rescue Leader more time to plan operations.
