Pump range primed for fire sea­son

Tasmanian Country - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

FIRE-fight­ing author­i­ties across Aus­tralia are warn­ing of a po­ten­tially cat­a­strophic bush­fire sea­son this year.

Win­ter rains have been a bonus for farm­ers but have also led to a huge in­crease in growth, pos­ing ma­jor haz­ards not only in the coun­try but also in ur­ban ar­eas.

Bri­er­ley Hose & Han­dling stores are primed to sup­port the lo­cal com­mu­nity by sup­ply­ing top-qual­ity Aussie fire pumps and ac­ces­sories.

When lives are on the line a pump that doesn’t prime the first time or an en­gine that fails to start can re­sult in tragedy.

Bri­er­ley’s is giv­ing away a free guide to help cus­tomers choose the best fire-pro­tec­tion sys­tem for their needs.

“Choos­ing the right fire pump could save your prop­erty, live­stock or even your own life,” said man­ag­ing di­rec­tor John Bri­er­ley.

“Even if you de­cide to evac­u­ate, you can’t al­ways pre­dict what will hap­pen dur­ing a bush­fire. We’ve al­ready seen just how quickly a hazard re­duc­tion can spread out of con­trol and the last thing any­one wants is to be caught out.”

The guide fea­tures the Aus- sie Fire Chief, de­vel­oped for Aus­tralian bush­fire con­di­tions and lauded in­ter­na­tion­ally.

The Fire Chief has the abil­ity to draft wa­ter through a ver­ti­cal lift of 7.6m, of­fer­ing great prim­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics that can be crit­i­cal when the pump is draw­ing wa­ter from a swim­ming pool, dam or tank and the wa­ter level is drop­ping.

The Fire Chief also fea­tures big wa­ter pas­sages with a twoinch in­let and a three- way out­let head. The pump boasts a max­i­mum flow of 500 litres per minute and of­fers a max­i­mum head of 75m, mak­ing it ideal for fight­ing spot fires and for house­hold pro­tec­tion.

The Fire Chief comes with skids and anti-vi­bra­tion mount as stan­dard equip­ment and is pow­ered by gen­uine Honda, Yan­mar, Kub­ota and Hatz Diesel en­gines.

The Fire Chief also boasts a five-year war­ranty.
