A tax deductible donation that prevents fires and helps animals.
ARC is working to deploy as many of these 1000 litre Fire Fighting trailers across rescue groups around Australia. The more we can sponsor the more that can get out into the field before fire season starts.
ARC is planning for fire prevention for the coming summer. Rescuers will need fire trailers. Easy to use and powerful support that can get into the zones fast when needed.
Enter . . Big Nick. This is worth the read. Tell your rescue friends.
Big Nicks Firefighting Trailers and Sleds approached us with a design. Standards based from easy to source parts. Industry standard 1000 Litre IBC, Standard Trailer, Standard Pump and made to get from A-B with no messing around. We have engineers on team who immediately said “this is how we do it”.
Enter the ARC Big Nick Fire trailer. This is your donations at work. Why standards based? Parts are easy to source, low cost and field maintainable. They are big and easy to spot going to get things done. They throw out enormous amounts of water at a distance to help spot fires and slow down areas of risk.
For more information just message or comment below.
You can go to Big Nicks page here https://www.facebook.com/firefightingtrailers/ – Seriously, this is the best designed fire trailer we have seen and we are going to keep making them until we cant.
This is a monster. Monster by name, monster by delivery, it uses the Honda GX200 Fire Fighting pump and this thing will throw out 6.5HP and 7 hours of water at flames for as long as your tank is full.
This is also the best priced. most cleverly designed system we have seen. The first one we have off the rack we have called Damien as it is a relentless beast that wont stop throwing water.
How we are allocating the trailers
The ARC team works closely with rescuers all over the country and as many of these as we can buy, we will be shipping out to rescue groups. The allocation is needs based on who needs them the most and who will use them all year round.
Fire trailers dont just do fires, they are an essential part of water cartage, drought support and in particular .. heat stroke events. They can be adapted to help with tree misting and cooling during heat events for bats and many many other means.
But when they are needed the most, they are for fires. They wont stop a forest fire but they can put out a spot fire and manage a roadside event hopefully until the big guns arrive with real trucks.
This will not be all. We are working with Nick to adapt these for many means.
Our allocation process is based on who was the most impacted this year and who has been working the most to help themselves and to help others in need. We will never have enough of these, there are thousands of rescuers around Australia, but if we can create a frontline support tool to help those right in the thick of it, then we have done something good.
You can donate to help us keep these things coming off the production line here. At $4500 a pop, this is a very low cost solution and very worth it
A huge thank you to Alli Cairns Nick Graham Sally Bourke and the design team that gave us the thumbs up.
