2016 fire awarenessEVTA Group in conjunction with CFA have been nominated as a finalist for the 2016 Fire Awareness Awards for the development and commercialisation of the Red Door Gel Crew Protection System.

The awards were initiated by CFA, MFB and DELWP to acknowledge development programs and projects within the Victorian community and have been running since the Ash Wednesday bush fires in 1983.

The Red Door Gel Crew Protection System is rapid deployable crew protection system designed for Ultralight Tankers that provides a thermal barrier around the vehicle to protect the crew in case of a burnover.

The benefit over traditional water spray systems is that the Red Door Gel Crew Protection System requires a mere 40 litres of water, and is deployed within 20 seconds to 

adequately protect the crew.

EVTA have spent the last two years developing the Gel system to ensure its reliable application.

The team at EVTA group are proud to have refined such a system and we envisage the system to be an integral component of crew safety

EVTA Group will be exhibiting at the Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council Conference (AFAC 2016) at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 30th August to 1st September, located at Stand 35. Call into the stand and we can provide you with the latest information on Storm King Mountain Fire Barrier Curtains, Fireco Telescopic Masts, SRS Roller Shutter Doors, Martin KFZ Technik Generator Systems, and our latest “Red Door Gel” crew protection system.

Fireco have released the ECO Tilt Unit which provides a simple and functional directional lighting system. The ECO Tilt is ideally suited to the smaller Fireco Turnable Partner masts such as the Zero (64mm) and Ultralight (77mm).

Once the mast is raised, the mast can be rotated manually by hand, and the lights can be tilted up or down via the corded remote control, to direct the lights to the exact location required.

EVTA has recently installed the ECO Tilt Unit on to Gisborne’s SES’s new Storm Response Vehicle which now allows the unit members to direct the 2 x 100W FirecoLED lights to where it is needed. Whether the task is securing a tarp to a roof or cutting a fallen tree across the road, the light can be adjusted without the need to lower the mast or access the top of the vehicle.

The ECO Tilt is ideally suited for service vehicles, tow trucks, and emergency response vehicles.
