Three WASP units were sold to Ventura Farms, located in the Lake Sherwood area of Ventura County. We delivered hands on training with the Ranch Employees that included how to operate the WASP unit and how to suppress a vegetation fire. We discussed the importance of safety and situational awareness if a wildfire starts. The Ranch Manager was very satisfied with our training and education on the WASP unit. His employees now have a mobile and simple fire suppression pump unit to use on the ranch to protect their assets in the event of an approaching wildfire.
The WASP unit also provides rapid fire suppression protection when employees are working with power tools near dry vegetation. Our mobile 70 gallon WASP unit will quickly knock down a small fire to keep it from growing into a lengthy and expensive mega wildfire. The 70 gallon tank provides 6.5 continuous minutes of water.
In attendance was the Ranch Owners Insurance Representatives. Both Representatives were impressed with our WASP unit and the importance of planning, practicing, and executing plan (PPE) to reduce the exposure to losing assets during a wildfire.
Our training included identifying safety zones, hazards, escape plans/routes, weather patterns; creating defensible space, and early decision making as key factors for a safe and positive outcome.
Many thanks to the manager of Ventura Farms to take a step forward into New Technology with Micro Droplet System Fire Suppression Technology. We use 90% less water compared to today’s standard firefighting systems to suppress fires. Our WASP unit is very effective and efficient. The water savings with our WASP unit will save millions of gallons of water every year. Our training and PPE plan will save many homes from turning into an ash pit.
