Having been a firefighter since 1995, travelling the globe and designing fire suppression systems for many communities from small home owner kits to full size emergency apparatus, it’s been a great learning experience for me. Over the years, I have visited various areas of devastation caused by natural disaters; wildfires, floods, tornadoes, cylones, just to name a few. I started asking myself, “What could have helped these events to reduce the loss?” I am a believer we can do a lot if you have the right tools and training. As for me, I know water and how to move it. This became my mission to use water to help suppress fires, slow floods, and offer healthy drinking water, all critical needs during most disasters. With increasing populations, climate change, limited water supply, and emergency services stretched, it’s difficult for communities to withstand large scale emergency events.
Using the three pillars of water delivery;
1) fire suppression
2) flood mitigation
3) potable water
We work with communities (small and large) to reduce impact by building capacity and business continuity into their community resilience plan.
