Vallfirest Tactical Unit: Wildfires Are Changing. Firefighting Tools Needed a Change, Too.

Fueled by the climate crisis, wildland fires are becoming faster, more unpredictable and more devastating. Being able to respond to extreme situations guaranteeing the safety of first responders means more strategic deployments and advanced maneuvers.

Anticipation is key to win the fire battle. Using technology to forecast ignitions, model and monitor the advance of fronts when they occur, having the knowledge to read fire behaviour, will tell us when and where we will have an open window (a time frame in which weather conditions allow us to enter the fire line). But without the right tools, we won’t be able to respond as fast and as forcefully as this kind of new emergency requires.

A custom manufactured module with a wide range of options and configurations to meet all kinds of operational needs. Adaptable to most light trucks available on the market.
