My friend and firefighter brother George passed along these great photos of his Fire Department in Chios Greece preparing for the up coming fire season using the MVP hose pack by Ambry Equipment. In Chios, they are very aware that using quality initial attack gear from Ambry Equipment is an investment, and will pay dividends when they put fires out.
Aggressive Initial attack is key to extinguishing fires. Standing at the road watching the fire get bigger doesn’t put the fire out. Get to the fire, get your tools, and get the MVP hose pack. Anchor in the hoselay, head up the hill, get to work, and put it out. Put fires out with Ambry Equipment. Thanks for the photos!
